I have edited the virtualbox slackbuilds, info files and patch file for
virtualbox                      to 6.1.44 (6.1.44a, more specifically)
virtualbox-kernel               to 6.1.40 (latest and greatest, it seems)
virtualbox-extension-pack       to 6.1.44
and built and (lightly) tested the results and all seems to be fine.

I don't want to pull the rug out from under the feet of the current
maintainer, but if he or someone in SBo management-land wants the updated
files, please let me know and I'll package them up and send them off.

For that matter, should anyone else want them I'll be happy to package them
up and send them off.
