Thanks for clarifying. By hacking the addressing I mean I use 4 bytes NID and just patch the address in the LND.
Last time I moved Lustre versions my main issues was with the build and install process, not the actual rebase
I found it challenging to build lustre for my specific kernel and Distro. 
Anyway, I'll give a try and see how it goes.
