VirtualBox guest kernel module gets loaded after display manager

Description

Running PCBSD 9.1-BETA1 I found that the kernel module for a VirtualBox guest gets loaded after the display server starts. This causes pointer integration (vboxmouse) and the VirtualBox? video (vboxvideo) drivers to not work.

The solution I found is to either add vboxguest to the list of fastboot_earlyrc startup files or add 'vboxguest_load="YES"' to /boot/loader.conf. This causes the vboxguest kernel module to be loaded before GDM starts, making vboxvideo and vboxmouse happy.
