[arch-general] Missing Dependency virtualbox-host-dkms

Replacing the `virtualbox-host-modules' with the `virtualbox-host-dkms'
package causes a "modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found in directory
/lib/modules/4.4.3-1-ARCH". The whole misc
(/lib/modules/4.4.3-1-ARCH/kernel/misc/) directory is missing.

You need to install the `linux-headers' package for a working dkms. DKMS
than can make the modules and creates the misc folder with all
virtualbox *ko files.

Is it possible to add the `linux-headers' package as a dependency for
the `virtualbox-host-dkms' package or miss I something?


Kind regards
