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.

tested with eBPF code, that did not work before with Secure Boot enabled. Works now fine. Thanks for the change!
