Don't downgrade userspace tools - upgrade them.  Best to use the same versions
of userspace packages in both environments.  But avoid snapshots.
(You'd need old packages on 2.4 to use them, and they're buggy anyway.)

The 2.4 kernel patches haven't been updated for some time and contain some 
bugs that already got fixed in the 2.6 tree.
