  As long as you continue to run a 5.2-RELEASE kernel, FreeBSD Update
is just going to try to update your system to 5.2.1-RELEASE.  Run
# freebsd-update --branch crypto fetch
# freebsd-update install
to update your system to 5.2.1-RELEASE, reboot, and then run FreeBSD
Update to get the updates since 5.2.1-RELEASE.
  Or, if you want a non-GENERIC kernel, cvsup and build one with all
the latest RELENG_5_2 kernel security fixes (and a 5.2.1- name).
