This is expected, yes. My patches are currently for a 2.0 FW, and it is
not backward compatible with a 1.3 FW.
I am currently running a 2.6.24 based on Andy's git tree, and it works fine
for me and my 2.0 FW module.

Now that everyone is shifting to a 2.6.24 tree, what about the production
images ? Will they run on a 2.6.24 as well ?
