All of these describe the host, but the vboxfs mount happens inside the VM, so all of this info doesn't help. So please tell us if the modules are loaded in the VM and which packages are installed there.
Maybe you're right. I don't know. I think enough to install the virtualbox-guest-additions (check this site: http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/all/virtualbox-guest-additions/filelist). After instal I mount VBoxGuestAdditions.iso under /media/cdrom and run the "sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run" command. Then the vboxsf module is created and after reboot the VM is working correctly. (The Vbox ShareFolder is available).

I use 4.1.2 VBox.
The VM is 6.0.3 Debian. VM kernel's 2.6.32-5-amd64
In VM the vboxmanage says:
/|vboxmanage -v
How about updating your vbox tools in the VM to match at least at the major version?
It's not necessary. The share folder (original aim) is working.
