Maybe I need to add my 2cents worth.
Being a kernel flasher, I have never run into this issue before.
When you flash a kernel, basically, the files changed are the boot image, and System/lib/modules.
Correct me if I am wrong. What is changed in the boot image, is moot. It's designed to work with the appropriate module files.
So in theory, if I flash a kernel, the existing system/lib/module files, should get overwritten, along with the existing boot image.
So in effect, if you wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache, then flash the kernel, you shouldn't have issues, for the most part.
Never had any issues flashing Thor's kernels, or any others afterwards. However, some parts of Thor's ROM may be designed to take advantage of certain things in his kernel. A mated pair so to speak.
