Why surprised? If you did a default build of LFS Glibc then you can  
build and run a kernel back to 2.6.32:

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter06/glibc.html   
--enable-kernel=

http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/Configuring-and-compiling.html

Any kernel ran before 2.6.32 gives "FATAL: Kernel too old!"

Sincerely,

William Harrington
