Installing a newer kernel is not an upgrade, in a sense. You are installing
new software alongside the old one. Thus the usual expectations don't hold.
PS: I do agree that it would be nice if there was a way to automatically
bring in the modules you are using for the new version, or at least warn,
but I can't seem to figure out a nice and elegant way of doing that. And
no, more people using testing won't fix this issue either.
