Are 4.6D and 4.6D extended kernels interchangeable?

We currently run R/3 4.6C (kernel 4.6D, SAP DB 7.3.0, Linux Enterprise Server 7). Service support for SLES7 has ended, and we need to upgrade our OS. SAP has certified SLES9, but I found out via the SAP marketplace that SLES9 is certified for MAXDB, which needs kernel 4.6D_ext. Would it make sense to upgrade from SLES7 to SLES9, preserving the 4.6D kernel and SAPDB 7.3.0, or do you recommend to upgrade from SLES7 to SLES8, a certified "combination"?

The 4.6D and 4.6D extended kernels are exchangeable. You should be able to upgrade to SLES9 and migrate to MAXDB using the 4.6D_ext kernel without problems.
