1) For example custom modules like nvidia.ko.
   I recommend you just move all modules out of /boot/modules
2) Also there may be some problems with ports (shared libraries etc.)

I had upgraded my workstation from 5-STABLE to 6-STABLE, and it worked.
But later I got another disk, and I had decided to do clean install.
