That is correct, so those binaries compiled on older kernel versions
won't attempt to use any of those features, because they are not aware
The only negative I can see to building glibc with --enable-kernel=2.6.0
is that if you compile and link a _static_ linked application against
this glibc and then copy that binary to a system running a kernel older
than 2.6.0 the binary won't run properly (if at all).
