You should reach out to Geoff (CC'd) as he's actually part to see
whether he or UPLEX could make oob_probe compatible with 5.2.

According to they can provide
commercial support for this module.

Otherwise one option is to have your own "probes" (or monitoring)
running outside of Varnish and use the CLI to set the backend heath,
for example via varnishadm.
