V5R4 to V6R1, tougher of the two, probably will need to upgrade all 3rd party software first because it will not convert.
V6R1 to V7R1, should go fairly smooth.
If you use OPENSSH, careful, changes are not documented in MTU, changes for both V6R1 and V7R1.
Also be careful with CPYTOIMPF.

I would recommend moving to 6.1 and then to 7.1. Especially if you're staying on the same 520.
The alternative is to perform a 'migration' as per:

I have a server 520 that stayed at V5.3, and I want to upgrade to V7.1
Can I skip directly, or must I go to V5.4 or V6.1?
