Yup, it does work. I use it routinely.

I wonder what should sysupgrade do when it detects a custom kernel
that is not available in the given repository. Fail as it does now?
Ignore the kernel upgrade? Or maybe the user should be the one
explicitly saying "UPDATE_KERNEL=no" or something similar when they
have explicitly compiled their own kernel, because sysupgrade cannot
deal with this.
