So is there a stable client for centos 7 that is backwards compatible with 2.5.3?

Yes.  It's worth noting that 2.7 is probably marginally less reliable than 2.5, since it has had no updates/fixes since it was released.

   Is the 2.7 lustre client compatible with lustre 2.5.3 servers?  I'm running a 2.5.3 system lustre system, but have been asked by a few people about upgrading some of our clients to CentOS 7 (which appears to need a 2.7 or greater client).
