That made a lot of sense yes. So the bottom line is that when you upgrade 
a kernel from say 2.4.3 to 2.4.3 you'd only do that to get additional drivers 
or bug fixes. If you want software to actually make use of new syscalls 
introduced in newer kernels you had better reinstall your entire system from 
scratch.
