I think it's more important to test against XP from an API level as that's
software is installed on

Whilst parts of our kernel try to target 5.2 changes, from a testing
perspective it should be
pretty much identical to 5.1.
IMO, unless you're a kernel dev interested in implementing some of the more
features in 5.2, then anyone with a 5.1 box is more than adequately setup
and I can't think of
any worthwhile advantage in having a 5.2 install.
