For stable branches, the kernel ABI compatibility ensures that old binaries can
still run on new kernels. i.e., 13.3 kernel with 13.2 userland. But not the

> I've seen other users mentioning similar issues on TrueNAS forums pinpointing to kqueuex() being the culprit for ABI incompatibility (https://www.truenas.com/community/threads/warning-dont-upgrade-your-truenas-core-jails-to-freebsd-13-3-just-yet.117018).

I think that is a good example to illuminate the ABI compatibility issue.

Run daemon(8) from FreeBSD 13.3 on 13.1:
root@:~ # /tmp/daemon -l daemon echo OK
ld-elf.so.1: /tmp/daemon: Undefined symbol "kqueuex@FBSD_1.7"

The parent does return 0. The child will complain with "Undefined symbol".
