Wayland GPU memory leak when opening and closing windows

We are seeing GPU memory being leaked (seen with gmem_info) when a Wayland client process opens and closes multiple windows.  We are running kernel 3.10.53 and GPU software 5.0.11.p4.4 on an i.MX6Q processor.  How can we resolve this problem?  I see the release notes for BSPs which include 5.0.11.p4.5 seem to indicate this problem is fixed there ("MGS-528 [#ccc] Wayland does not free window memory until the application exits").  Can we use 5.0.11.p4.5 with a 3.10.53 kernel to fix the memory leak, while maintaining stability?  And will there be a patch release of a 3.10.53 based BSP which includes updated GPU software?
