I personally do:

If the kernel has provided stability for 30 days.  For your case, you
may want to do:

	cp -R /boot/kernel.old /boot/kernel.good

since the kernel.old is last known good kernel.  Of course
is a good name.  For a STABLE branch you generally won't need to fear
that loader changes can prevent you from being able to boot from older
kernels.  Therefore, I think the procedure you have listed is enough to
