What happens to DKMS after kernel 5.7?

I'm reading the Anbox wiki page and in the Prerequisite section there is a note saying

The dkms modules do not work on kernels ≥5.7 anymore.

I couldn't find any docs/posts about why. DKMS works fine on other distros. So I'm wondering what happened to DKMS or Arch Linux kernel after 5.7.

Thanks.

Because the modules are in mainline now, and the out-of-tree dkms ones have been phased out and thus are no longer maintained (read: were not updated for 5.7 and higher)
