[Buildroot] mismatch between kernel version and kernel headers

I use an old kernel 2.6.37 with an embedded machine, yet I need to use
it with more update gcc than the one used on building the image
(Instead of 4.3 need to use 5.1).
I am using latest buildroot for this and use it with linaro toolchain 5.1.
Can it work with kernel 2.6.37 even though the toolchain kernel
headers is 4.0.0 ?

NOTE: I don't use any kernel modules, so not sure if there is any
significance for kernel header mismatch.

What do you think ?

Thank you,
