--- Comment #1 from Ed Maste <emaste at freebsd.org> ---
Note that FreeBSD-update first tries kernel.old, then kernel.old1 etc.:

# We could not use current directory name, so add counter to
# the end and try again.
CNT=$((CNT + 1))
if [ $CNT -gt 9 ]; then
        echo "Could not find valid backup dir ($BASEDIR/$BACKUPKERNELDIR)"
        exit 1
BACKUPKERNELDIR="`echo $BACKUPKERNELDIR | sed -Ee 's/[0-9]\$//'`"

Allan has some WIP to automatically determine the available kernel list; this
problem will likely be solved with that work.
