Looks like this should be:

#define FALL_THROUGH __attribute__((__fallthrough__))

and there appear to be many of these #defines that
use __attribute__((foo)) where foo does not use the
double underscored prefix and suffix form

I also downloaded and trivially attempted to build vbox
without success, but I don't find this #define anywhere
in the sources. Clues?

$ git clone git://github.com/mirror/vbox.git
$ cd vbox

$ git grep FALL_THROUGH
$

$ ./configure
Checking for environment: Determined build machine: linux.amd64, target machine: linux.amd64, OK.
Checking for kBuild:
** kmk (variable KBUILDDIR) not found!
Check /home/joe/vbox/configure.log for details


$ cat configure.log
# Log file generated by
