So it is right to say that the custom kernel "problem" applies only when
upgrading to a newer release?
All I have to do is 'freebsd-update fetch install' to update the base
system then 'freebsd-update -b /usr/jail/jail_name fetch install' to
update the jails?
I hope so because it would be very impressing :)
