[lfs-support] LFS 7.1 rebuilding a kernel with a newer version

After a week and a half of wrestling with LFS, I have successfully
built up what appears to be a working system. This was my third
attempt and well, you know what they say. Thanks to all of the
maintainers for this wonderful resource.
In section 6.7.1 of LFS 7.1 I installed the headers for linux-3.2.6.
By the time I made to actually building the kernel proper I grabbed
linux-3.2.27 from kernel.org. Though it is only a different bugfix
version, it just occured to me that I am mixing Linux versions
Can I safely leave the kernel headers from an earlier Linux version
in place when rebuilding the kernel proper. Are the Linux headers
guaranteed to be stable across security/bugfix versions? If Linux
headers do need replacing when upgrading, are they easily removed?
Does the kernel ship with a simple tool to clean out these headers?
