Motivation for this change

I needed nvidia working in a virtual environment, and was wondering why it wouldn't activate.
It appeared, that if virtualbox guest is enabled, all other video drivers are getting disabled.
I think the author of this line probably assumed that other video drivers will never be needed inside virtualbox, but this is not true.
If PCI passthrough is set up, other driver are actually wanted.

Things done

append videoDrivers instead of overriding them.

  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

The override seems to be there since the begining: 4adc99f

But I think we are good if removed.
