VirtualBox 5.1.24 Adds Initial Support for Linux 4.13, Improves Fedora Support

Nearly three months in development, VirtualBox 5.1.24 comes with a lot of improvements and bug fixes, in particular for users of GNU/Linux distributions. First off, it introduces initial support for the upcoming Linux 4.13 kernel series, whose development was kicked off last Saturday by Linus Torvalds. Additionally, VirtualBox 5.1.24 reduces the kernel stack consumption for Linux kernels that are compiled with the CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK option, improves compatibility with Linux kernel modules that are built with the GCC 7 compiler, and addresses a couple of issues with the Linux 4.12 kernel series.
