[yocto] Kernel too old?

I'm trying to run some user code on a [closed] box that it's
difficult (maybe impossible) to update the kernel.  To date,
I've been able to create my own user environment using Yocto
and then just 'chroot XXX'.  That came to an end today with
the latest (version 2.2) like this:

   DiskStation> chroot /volume1/MY.test/
   FATAL: kernel too old
   DiskStation> cat /proc/version
   Linux version (root at build5) (gcc version 4.3.2 (GCC) ) #3202 SMP Fri Mar 1 01:04:06 CST 2013

Where '/volume1/MY.test' is my Yocto-built root file system.

Is there any way around this if I can't update the running kernel?
