Reload VirtualBox modules in Fedora 19

I keep forgetting to install the corresponding VirtualBox modules in Fedora when I get a kernel upgrade. Since Fedora uses systemd, which I’m kinda a n00b at I end up google’ing this over and over.
After rebooting to a new kernel, realising I can’t load a virtual machine in VirtualBox, I yum install the corresponding kmod-VirtualBox-3.10.[something] , but there’s no init script in /etc/init.d like I’m used to. systemctl -a and grepping for anything related to vbox doesn’t show anything either !

But it seem to be the systemd-modules-load service that check and load modules, so reloading that service will load the VirtualBox modules

# systemctl restart systemd-modules-load.service
