I don't understand your problem. Why _NOT_ to skip from 4.7.5 to 4.8.0?
Would you like to put some extra numbers in between?

I tried this kernel but it doesn't allow virtualbox-modules to compile? Do I have to unmask some newer version of vbox? Did you manage to compile it?

Thanks

Yeah, they've been changing and moving around a lot of the code the virtualbox modules depend on in the last few versions.

There are a couple things you can do:

1) VirtualBox-5.1.6
You can try keywording virtualbox-5.1.6 which DOES compile with kernel 4.8.0 (NB: If you successfully emerge the 5.1.6 kernel modules but none of them work and complain about unknown symbols, you MUST turn off CONFIG_TRIM_UNUSED_KSYMS in your kernel config, recompile it, reboot and try again!)

However, I've not been able to get virtualbox 5.1.6 working on my system yet as it segfaults in libQt5DBusVBox.so.5 as soon as I run it, and I don't know what to do about it. (Suggestions welcome!)


2) Patch VirtualBox-4.3.38
You will need to know what an overlay is and how to use it, but everything else you need is in here:

HTH!

after upgrade of the kernel i always download the new run file from the official VirtualBox website that is compatible with all Linux systems.

Then i remove the old VirtualBox bin files:

Code:
whereis virtualbox


Code:
 whereis VirtualBox


then remove those bin files:

Code:
sudo rm -rf /usr/bin/virtualbox


Code:
sudo rm -rf /usr/bin/VirtualBox


then run the new VirtualBox-5.1.6-110634-Linux_amd64.run

after the .run make sure you modprobe the VirtualBox modules:

Code:
modprobe vboxdrv

Code:
modprobe vboxnetadp

Code:
modprobe vboxnetflt


and make sure you add the user to the virtualbox group:

Code:
gpasswd -a <user> vboxguest


OpenRC run VirtualBox modules at startup edit the /etc/conf.d/modules

Code:
modules="vboxdrv vboxnetadp vboxnetflt"


Systemd run VirtualBox modules at startup edit the /etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf

Code:
vboxdrv
vboxnetadp
vboxnetflt


VirtualBox worked fine for me with genkernel-4.8.0 and today 9 September 2016 i upgraded to genkernel-4.8.1 which also seems to work fine with VirtualBox-5.6.1
