Seems ok for me. Works on baremetal (non UEFI) AMD Ryzen5 3600, Mainboard MSI B450M Mortar Max with prop. nvidia driver from rpmfusion.org (GTX980 card), VirtualBox 6.1.4 from Oracle and Gnome-Desktop. Regression test passed (paxtest, selinux-dac-controls and libhugetlbfs skipped)

But i am also (as @stklcode mentioned for 5.5.5) affected by nv_drm_atomic_helper_disable_all warnings[1] during boot. But this does not seem to have any real impact on the system in usage.

works for me: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU & laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (the desktop ran the performance test in under 10 minutes, but the laptop took about 108 minutes -- more than 10 times longer!) - all using the Mate Desktop Environment

Nice, thanks to whoever fixed the boot problem originating with 5.5.13 :D

Not yet tested otherwise, but since it boots, am expecting it to work the same as 5.5.10 for me (so far it does).
