To follow up - the reason for the UPDATING file and the layout of rebuilding 
your system is to guide users that are upgrading from 4.x to 5.x

You will see vast changes in the way the kernel is handled in 5.x along 
with /dev

However, reading that file explains this in detail. Simply moving from 
4.9-RELEASE to 4.9-STABLE and the patches isn't considered a major upgrade.

A simple rebuild of the kernel and a simple make world does work well in this
