Yes, I don't think most of them will be backported to 5.9, I think they
set the bar a bit higher for that.
>From my PoV, I don't have much of a difference what version you choose,
it's pretty easy to rebase these ones around to anything between 5.6 and
5.11. Some of the versions inbetween also require a few other patches for
other issues that appeared after 5.6; most of them are merged in 5.10.1
except for the actual mkspec.
So if you want to reduce the amount of patches, 5.10.1 is probably the
safest bet of the actually released versions, while 5.9 probably also is
good choice since it's a LTS. I'll leave the choice of version up to
others, in case there's other issues/incompatibilities with the vlc
