When did this change?

I have a box (my NAS) that is running Debian stable (lenny) with a
custom 2.6.30 kernel. I never build initramfs images. Currently:

$ df /
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/md0               3842296   1578104   2225156  42% /
$ cat /proc/cmdline
root=/dev/md0 ro 

My /dev/sd[bc]1 partitions are of type 0xFD. /dev/md0 has a version
00.90 superblock.

If I upgrade this kernel, or upgrade to the new stable when it's
released, is this box going to stop booting?
