Kexec for ARM: Is it expected to load old kernels?

I suppose you need the ATAG changes introduced in 2.6.24 in order to
boot an arm kernel from kexec.
There are around patches for 2.6.22 and 2.6.23

See amongst others:

[ARM] 4599/1: Preserve ATAG list for use with kexec (2.6.23)
[ARM] 4836/1: Make ATAGS_PROC depend on KEXEC
