The best is to ask your BSP supplier to provide a new version of the BSP

Backporting userspace stuff is difficult or impossible.
For those who aren't afraid to digging deeper, it is possible to limit
the impact of BSP layers by e.g. restricting which recipes and bbappends
get applied in your product via BBMASK in distro config for example.
This enables much, much faster updates cycles since fixing one or two BSP recipes
for new yocto version is easier than waiting and possibly paying for a full
update with all bells and whistles.

In many cases users don't need all patches and changes provided in BSP SW layers.
In some cases they are even undesirable.

But yes, talking to BSP supplier(s) is a good start.
