5.3 Kernel module with 6.0

Hi there!

I've got a Highpoint RocketRAID 454 Controller running under FreeBSD 5.3.
It needs a binary only driver (hpt374.ko) to run.
I'd like to upgrade to 6.0 for several reasons, but the latest driver
module from highpoint is for 5.3.
So here's my question:
Is it possible to simply run the 5.3 kernel module under 6.x? In
theory this could work if the kernel interfaces haven't changed,

Please also respond directly to me since I am not subscribed to this list.

Thanks for your help,
