fwiw, the current 6.1.X test builds contain the current 5.7 changes
already, pick up:
Guest Additions 6.1.x revision 137519
and for the host from:
Linux 64-bit 6.1.x revision 137519
Linux EL6 64-bit 6.1.x revision 137519
Linux EL7 64-bit 6.1.x revision 137519
Linux EL8 64-bit 6.1.x revision 137519
we still need to release new test builds for trunk though.
