Most people do not need a custom Kernel, just some modules added at runtime.
On What part of source do you intend to run cvsup?
New Kernel should be run in order to provide binaries
with system calls not available in old Kernel.
Compiling something with new Kernel headers in place,
this may be necessary in general.
Most applications run nicely without upgrading Kernel, you
can even switch back to an older one.
Most of the time i "upgrade" by running a new kernel (for weeks :) at first,
replacing system libs etc. afterwards.
