When I upgrade a major revision (3.4.x -> 3.5.x ), I always get a listing
from "testparm -v" before and after the upgrade to make sure that a
parameter (that I didn't specify in the config) didn't change it's default

Can I go directly from 3.4.7 to the new 3.5.8 without installing any
intermediate versions? Or is there a different route I should follow?

Thank you for your help,

Both patches should work fine together. As per our policy, security fix
releases contain no other changes than the security bugfix.

Just take the 3.5.7 release and apply the jumbo patch on top of it, as you
did with 3.5.6.

A 3.5.8 will be released soon with all the pending patches we were planning
the next release before it got preempted by the security fix.

Hope this helps,
