Looking at the API changes between versions[1],
I don't see anything other than two removed symbols between the
5.5 and 5.6 series that would have required the Kodi package to
require using the MySQL 5.5.x client library.  Since it compiles
and links correctly using the MySQL 5.7 client library, your
change is probably safe.
