In which case the reporting of the OOPS is useless anyways
irrespective of whether or not vboxdrv was loaded. So the tool can
opt out based on the fact that it cannot find enough info in the OOPS
- missing module list for example. But I don't think that's a very
likely scenario - oops is in most cases accompanied by tainted flag
and module list - the possibility of OOPS printing only tainted but
not module list is not very real and can be ignored.
