[Q] Can I use Nexus 4 KitKat kernel (binary) directly on a Snapdragon 600 device

I'm trying to get Android 4.4 up and running on my LG Optimus G Pro (GPRO). The GPRO uses the Snapdragon 600 processor which is almost identical to the S4 Pro found in the Nexus 4. I pulled the Android 4.4_r1 tag and noticed that Google already has the kernel (binary) available for the mako device (Nexus 4) and was wondering if I can simply reuse the binary on the GPRO. I know I still need to build the GPRO specific board support binaries which I am in the process of doing but I would imagine that the kernel is something that I should just be able to reuse. Are there any technical pitfalls that I am not seeing here with respect to reusing the kernel? I'm going for a close to AOSP build as possible. I guess I'll find out the answer to my question soon enough but was just wonder if folks have already tried this and was there a great deal of success.
