Hi, i am uploading my last updated EFI of Dell 7560. I used Opencore 0.6.3 and it is Catalina and BigSur ready.
I don´t want to make a thread on BigSur Laptop Guide. Fell free to do that, modify this work or add more features.

Updated EFI BigSur ready, now with I2C Trackpad working fine for better gestures support.
Sleep-wake is fine and very stable. Cpu power management working great. Brightness keys working.

It's working! I tried to modify it using ProperTree as recommended on dortania guide and it broke it, so I guess on my previous attempts it was a mistake to use ProperTree. I have modified your EFI config manually to add AirportBrcmFixup.kext and 3 Brcm kexts and now wifi and bluetooth are working great. Thank you! :)

@edit
Also it's strange that compared to clover build from this thread command (windows key) and option (alt key) are swapped, I wonder how to fix it on OpenCore level (temporary fix is to swap them in keyboard settings)

@edit2
Consider removing ACPIBatteryManager as SMCBatteryManager is enough and acpi can cause problem as it was created for fakesmc not virtualsmc

I don't know why that is. There is no patch that interferes with the use of these keys inserted in the code. The solution I use is the same as you mention.

You are right that SMCBatteryManager is more modern and effective. In fact, both work well, even without using FakeSMC. I forgot to delete the ACPIBatteryManager from that EFI, but it was not enabled in the config after all.
Thank you for watching this.

I will try to find where's the problem with keys, but for now I've updated to Big Sur and it's quite good, but fans are starting more often compared to Catalina, for now I will let Big Sur settle down and report after day or two.
There was problem with wifi when I installed update, but it can be fixed by removing "AirPortBrcm4360_Injector.kext" from "AirportBrcmFixup.kext/Contents/Plugins/" (don't know if this step is required, but I removed this file anyway) and modifying AirportBrcmFixup.kext loading in OpenCore config.plist (it's required to add AirPortBrcmNIC_Injector.kext before AirportBrcmFixup):
