Thats NOT contrary to what anyone was saying (Im not sure who OP is). 
You're just too busy writing people off as trolls to read whats written. He 
said it didnt work at all with the 7520 MB, and he said his OLD 533Mhz
MB was faster in 4.9 than the new MB was in 5.3 so it made no sense
to upgrade. 

So, apparently, doing a PR doesnt work, since the PR you cited has
been largely ignored for 3 months. So whats else do you recommend, Ted?

PS: the 7520/7530 is required for use of Intel's newest CPUs, so its 
not some random chipset. It should be way higher in the list of priorities
than the peripheral "fixes" noted for 4.11.
