In theory you should be able to do cvs update -d -P in /usr/src. In
practise, you will need to edit the CVS/Entries file in the top level
frist, otherwise you will only update certain subdirectories.

I'm not at home atm, so I can't check exactly what you need to do, but if
you've used cvs before it should be failry straightforward.

Good luck.
