They mostly are (there are some errno changes from time to time, etc.).

But with each release LTP gets more test coverage and considerable
amount of bugfixes.

As we are still in a phase where we are cleaing and reviewing legacy
code, the amount of bugfixes is quite high. I guess that the amount of
bugfixes will drop in a fortcoming years but for now running latest LTP
is very important.
