You'd hope so, however from the CHANGES file in openssl 1.0.1 under
"Changes between 1.0.0h and 1.0.1" (a "fix" release, in openssl's
parlance) shows, amongst other things:
*) Functions FIPS_mode_set() and FIPS_mode() which call the
FIPS modules versions.
*) [...] This enables the following EC_METHODs:
so, new functions introduced in "fix" releases. Given this, we are yet
to be convinced that "fix" releases both are forward and backward ABI
