Finally!

Now I can use Pat's latest LTS vetted .config and piggyback it on -stable

Code:
% uname -a

So far, so good....

Question, does the #1 indicate it is the generic kernel and the #2 (see post number 3, above) the huge kernel?

uname -v
#1 SMP Thu May 4 03:36:04 CDT 2017
is the version number according to man uname

[EDIT]
misread the question!
1 = generic
2 = huge

And GCC 7 too. That's a big jump. I wonder why 6 was skipped over (only in testing)?

VirtualBox-5.1.14-112924-Linux_amd64.run and kernel 4.9.26 work fine together.

I was planning to upgrade to the latest VB 5.1.22 but after reading your posts I am not sure if it will work.

Running it in VirtualBox 5.1.2.2 doesn't work for me. I get "unknown symbol" errors when I try to modprobe vboxguest.
