Perry, go back and read the Subject line.

Last I heard, sysinst didn't have an option to just upgrade he
kernel, reboot, and then upgrade the rest of the universe.   It
upgrades everything, all at once.

What people who do manual upgrades of their system do is irrelevant for
what is being discussed.   What matters is what sysinst does.
