Actually the release notes cover upgrading quite well, pity I read them
*after* working out the problem...

I think its a bit much to require someone to consult the kernel source
just to upgrade a binary package, but perhaps you meant kernel-doc-*.

>Care to write an upgrading document we could use?

I think a small addition to the release notes should be enough. In
section 3.1 there's a bulleted list of issues for upgrading the kernel.
Maybe something like this could be added:

  "Some kernel options have changed, and incorrect options may prevent
   your system from booting. See your kernel's
   Documentation/m68k/kernel-options.txt file for more information."
