You can, but I'd recompile my Oracle executables after the kernel switch is done. To do this, change directory to $ORACLE_HOME/bin. You will find an executable called 'relink'. Type 'relink all' with no Oracle software running to recompile all Oracle software for that ORACLE_HOME. Just to be safe, make sure you have a backup in place before proceeding with this operation.
