According to Lars when I asked the same question (8.0.11 to 8.0.12
though, how did your stuff get that dated?), running a newer userland
with an older module should be fine. Of course you can't use any of
the newer features.
But given that 8.0.7 is really old and has plenty of known and by now
fixed bugs, you own it to yourself and your data to update the module,

Doing one update/machine at a time is the thing to do and the recommended
upgrade path (keeping one machine/resource available). The various 8.x
versions can all talk to each other.
