No, nothing definitive yet, if I had to guess, I'd say that the test repo
would get available in Q2 rather than Q3, though.

Debian 11 Bullseye will ship the 5.10 kernel, Ubuntu 21.04 will ship the 5.11 kernel.

We will use the newer one from Ubuntu, and actually, that one is already
available for testing in Proxmox VE 6 since almost a month[0].

Note, while we did not see any issue anywhere, we still recommend to stay on 5.4, which
will stay the default kernel for the remaining PVE 6.x lifetime.

With above note in mind, you can install it by executing:

apt update
apt install pve-kernel-5.11
