Upgrade Jessie to kernel 4.2

(Setup info at end)
I am considering upgrading the kernel my stable install to kernel
version 4.2 from jessie-backports.  The main purpose of this is to see
whether it helps with the problem I have been having with sound.

*My question is* :  how much / what do I risk breaking in doing this?

(daud@debian:~$ uname -a
Linux debian 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt20-1 (2015-11-19)
x86_64 GNU/Linux)
daud@debian:~$ cat /etc/debian_version
daud@debian:~$ gcc --version
gcc (Debian 4.9.2-10) 4.9.2

* Non-free firmware installed = firmware-iwlwifi & firmware-realtek

It's an efi install - only Debian is installed.

I have just tried out the Knoppix 7.6 live distro, which has kernel
7.2.2 & sound plays out of the box in that.
