Meztli If 5.6 works fine for you then you can stick with that for now. Same goes for linux-lts. I'm cooking a kernel with the patch I referenced above. Not going to rebuild all the kernel modules against it yet, but will need you to test the eopkg once the kernel builds and I upload the eopkg to our web server.
If it works, I'll push it to unstable, rebuild all the kernel modules, and get it pushed to stable.
Will post with installation commands if the kernel builds and once it is uploaded.
