Yes, it should still work.

Trying to run this:

Ends in this:

     sysupgrade: E: Failed to fetch
It looks like sysupgrade tried to automatically discover your kernel
config name, and determined it to be "AUTOUPDATE".  Is that correct?
You can run "config -x | head -1" to see.  You can explicitly set
the kernel to use as part of the auto-update with:

	sysupgrade -o KERNEL=GENERIC auto <releasedir>

Correct you are. I was able to work around this by simply using "-o KERNEL=GENERIC". I had forgotten that I chose a different name for the kernel when installing some patches a while back and assumed netbsd-AUTOUPDATE.gz was some sort of tool sysupgrade wanted.

Thanks for the pointer.
