Dell Blade Center with Brocade M5424 SAN switches and servers with QLogic QME2572 HBA's at 5.06 firmware level

Has anyone updated M5424 to FOS7.0.2d using this level of firmware on the QLogic HBA's?  How about these same chassis connected to a DCX at FOS7.2.1a? It doesn't appear at all in the IBM Interoperability Matrix but IBM has approved an RPQ for the compatibility - but that doesn't mean they have tested it.  I have mission critical systems running in these Dell blade centers (I know,  but not my decision) and I need to be absolutely sure the FAB/OS upgrade doesn't break the connections to storage.  Help anyone?
