Looks 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 6.1.12 from Oracle doesn't work with kernel 5.8. Regression test passed (paxtest, selinux-dac-controls and libhugetlbfs skipped).

A little Information: Virtualbox 6.1.14 is out and now it works with kernel 5.8 as VM-Host again.
