Summary - Boot 4.1 kernel on 4.0.3

From: Barry Shein (

Got conflicting responses on this one all over the map, from people
who claimed they've done it and it seemed to work to Sun folks who are
quite sure this is a dangerous thing to do to other Sun folks who
suspect it can be done but some utilities (like init) would have to be
4.1 also.

My suspicion: don't do it unless you're willing to take the knocks
(e.g. it's likely that file system changes between 4.0.3 and 4.1 are
incompatible and will get you.) Perhaps the person who was successful
tried it diskless? NFS should be the same.
