The 5705 is supported by 5.2.1 - tested and verified on a Tyan S4882.
But yes, you should try 5.3-BETA6, as one of the changes to bge(4) may
fix things. bge is also part of GENERIC, so you shouldn't need to build
a custom kernel.
It's also possible that HPaq gave the 5705 a different VenID or DevID,
which would prevent the driver from detecting. They've been known to do
it in the past.
