Is device tree from Vivado 2014.2 backward compatible with previous kernels?

We have done two designs on zync 7000 and on that we used Xilinx 14.7 ISE. Also kernel we used was one released at that time. We have done some modifications in that kernel for our design.

But currently due to some convinience in fpga design we have to move to new version of Design Suite-Vivado 2014.2.

We generated a device tree from 2014.2 for our current design and when we compare the previous and current dts files we saw many differences between them in syntax, compatible names and node parameters.

Will the new device tree from 2014.2 be backward compatible with previous kernel ?

Please see the previous kernel details below.
