Smile [Q] Kernel compatibility

Hi guys I have an LG D802, so I was wondering if I flashed a kernel that previously worked on jellybean onto kitkat will it work without any issues? From what i hear a kernel is phone/hardware specific and not android version specific. I would like your opinions on this before I do anything. Thanks
