    then to answer your question; at compile time you tell glibc what
    minimum kernel version it can assume, and based on that glibc will
    enable/disable certain features. So it depends on what your distro
    supplied there if it'll work or not. if you tell glibc that at minimum
    you do 2.4.1 for example, then no a 2.2 kernel won't work. I think most
    distros do this (or an even later version) since a few years now.
