I was going to stay with 5.7.y while waiting for 5.9, but 5.7 has gone EOL. So, once VirtualBox supports the 5.8.y kernel I'll take 5.8 for a test drive.

I've been using 5.8, 5.8.1, 5.8.2, 5.8.3 so far without a hitch. All built with gcc 10.2.0. NVIDIA drivers seem happy as well. I'll switch to 5.9.x when it exits the RC stage.

Yes, I've compiled it, but I haven't rebooted to try it out yet. Compiled fine.

Edit: I should add I compiled with the GCC 5.5.0 compiler on 14.2, using the -current kernel config (with a few very minor edits).

I compiled two versions of 5.4.61:
one with all goods that I need for VM host (Slackware-current)
and one for VM Client (Slackware-current removed a lot of stuff that simple have no value in the case of VM client).
Both versions work.

5.7.19 breaks qBittorrent... I know for a fact because I downgraded back to 5.4.51 and re-installed 5.7.19 and no connection at all. I have double-checked to make sure before posting. Now I gotta build a 5.4.6x version.

5.6.19 breaks exFAT

5.7.19 breaks qBittorrent

As I don't use qBittorrent I can't verfiy that, but everything I run on the computer works as it should with 5.7.19.
The 5.8.5 kernel has also been built and installed and, again, everything I use, except VirtualBox, works as it should. As I need VirtualBox, I'm using 5.7.19 until VirtualBox is updated.

Compiled 5.4.60 last night, installed it. exFAT and qBittorrent works just fine. Seems like those EOL are useless at least on my system.
