Using different kernel/header versions?

Does using a boot kernel older than the kernel source used to generate 
API headers cause problems?

In explanation, I built LFS 6.3 per documentation using the 2.6.22.5 
kernel source to generate API headers.  Unfortunately, I can't boot to 
the 2.6.22.5 kernel.  However, I can successfully boot to my LFS 6.2 
2.6.16.27 kernel.  I can also compile a 2.6.16.27 kernel on my 6.3 
system and boot.

So, is there a problem running an older kernel against newer headers 
until I solve the newer kernel problem?
