Looks ok for me. Works on baremetal (non UEFI mode) AMD Ryzen5 3600, Mainboard MSI B450M Mortar Max with prop. nvidia driver from rpmfusion.org (GTX980 card), something isn't able to build with VirtualBox 6.1.18 from Oracle. Have to wait for a new release of VB. Works with Gnome-Desktop (Xorg). Regression test passed (paxtest, selinux-dac-controls and libhugetlbfs skipped).
