IMHO the upgrade pricedure is unstable and wrong in either case. If you build, install a new kernel and reboot and they make installworld you may face code dumps because all world is not compatible with the new kernel.
if yo build, install a new kernel and install world w/o reboot then during installworld one program is substituted with a new one which uses new kernel and make installworld may fail. IMHO this thing must be resolved in the future and it would be nice to do it this way: 1) build kernel and install it into a buffer 2) build workld and install it into a buffer 3) make changes to config files and install new config file into a buffer 4) reboot 5) during reboot load shoud check the install buffer and if there is something in it then copy it into a real working filesystem. This way we will abvoid nonmtaching executables and kernel at any given time.
