+1 since per https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates it qualifies
for both of these criteria in my opinion.
# Bugs which do not fit under above categories, but (1) have an
obviously safe patch and (2) affect an application rather than critical
infrastructure packages (like X.org or the kernel).
# For Long Term Support releases we regularly want to enable new
hardware. Such changes are appropriate provided that we can ensure to
not affect upgrades on existing hardware. For example, modaliases of
newly introduced drivers must not overlap with previously shipped drivers.

However it would also be necessary & wise to review the full change log
entries since there is likely way more changed in 1.5.8 (vs. 1.5.6 or 7)
than this one value change.
