Changes in the upstream kernel do not break existing installations. If you don't want your software to change, don't install a new kernel.

In other words, it's a Linux 3.0 change?

Current Linux still runs a lot of statically linked programs dating from
1992, modulo occasional a.out-related breakage. I don't see why that
should ever change (perhaps because a.out support finally gets dumped: I'm
not sure how useful it is to be able to run programs which predate Windows
3.1...)
