so what are they doing then all day long since you still run 5.5
released 4 years ago followed by 5 minor-updates bringing
critical security fixes?

5.5, also termed Update 5, 30 March 2010 (kernel 2.6.18-194)[17]
5.6, also termed Update 6, 13 January 2011 (kernel 2.6.18-238)[17]
5.7, also termed Update 7, 21 July 2011 (kernel 2.6.18-274)[17]
5.8, also termed Update 8, 20 February 2012 (kernel 2.6.18-308)[17]
5.9, also termed Update 9, 7 January 2013 (kernel 2.6.18-348)[17]
5.10, also termed Update 10, 1 October 2013 (kernel 2.6.18-371)[17]

and you are stating that you don't use the distribution packages
of MySQL so it is not affected at all from a dist-upgrade?
