VMM: Fixed MONITOR/MWAIT crash with Solaris guests when Hyper-V is used on Windows 11
VMM: Introduced general improvements in nested visualization area
VMM: Fixed triple fault related guru meditations for UEFI guests starting with macOS Ventura 13.3 (bug #21563)

Main/UefiVariableStore: Added API to add signatures to the MOK list (Machine Owner Key)
VBoxManage: Introduced modifynvram enrollmok sub-command to enroll Machine Owner Key into NVRAM, so Linux guest kernel can pick it up in order to verify signature of modules signed with this key
Guest Control/Main: Fixed deleting files via built-in toolbox
Linux host: Added possibility to bypass kernel modules signature verification once VBOX_BYPASS_MODULES_SIGNATURE_CHECK="1" is specified in /etc/vbox/vbox.cfg, useful in case if Linux distribution does not provide necessary tools to verify kernel module signature
Linux Guest Additions and host Installer: Improved detection if system is running systemd as the init process
Linux Guest Additions and host drivers: Introduce initial support for kernel 6.3
Linux Guest Additions: Added possibility to bypass kernel modules signature verification once VBOX_BYPASS_MODULES_SIGNATURE_CHECK="1" is specified in /etc/virtualbox-guest-additions.conf, useful in case if Linux distribution does not provide necessary tools to verify kernel module signature
Linux Guest Additions: Added experimental support for kernel modules and user services reloading in the end of installation process, thus guest system reboot after Guest Additions (7.0.8 and newer) upgrade is no longer required in general case
