So far, everybody wants (or accept we need) a binary package for -arch kernel.
So, I pushed a binary package for virtualbox -arch kernel modules.

I hope others dkms only packages (ndiswrapper, sysdig) will also provide a
binary version for the -arch kernel. This would be a step forward in a common
way of providing kernel modules.

Regarding binary modules for -lts,-zen,-grsec, I think we should either
provides them or not. But not stay in each packager do is own choice.
