CentOS 7.4 docker container hangs Ubuntu 16 host frequently, is it expected?

My docker image is based on CentOS ( FROM centos:7.4.1708 ) when I run it on Ubuntu 16 machine, the machine hangs frequently.

I know Docker uses host OS kernel and CenOS 7.4 uses Kernel 3.10 while Ubuntu 16 uses 4.4. But I had thought the higher kernel version maybe “backward compatible”. But apparently it was not the case in my situation.

So is that expected ?
