Whenever I upgrade to a newer -current, I keep copies of a number of
files from the old source distribution around during the upgrade,
notably /sys/arch/*/GENERIC and the /usr/src/etc directory.  For the
GENERIC config file, I diff the old and the new, and then read the
diff listing to see what I need to change in my own config files.  In
/usr/src/etc I do the same for the files that have been modified in
the new distribution and that I know I've changed, and just copy the
new versions that I haven't changed into place.
