I would like to upgrade both OS kernel and PGsql version , so in my opinion the
best way to handle it is to *backup* the data in .tar

Just remember if you're going from 7.3.2 => 7.4.x or 8.0 then you'll need to use pg_dump not just tar up the directories. If you do use tar, remember to backup *all* the directories.
