It's a pretty good indication, but not definite. I once tripped over a
bug in a SCSI driver that caused failures under load, so I could do an
installworld but not a buildworld. If you've got the time, you can
always try running a buildworld on the new kernel. That's a thorough
stress test.

Any hardware not touched in getting to the shell prompt that *has* to
be working on your system.
