It's the 'installworld' (7) and 'mergemaster' (8) steps that require a
reboot, and 'delete-old' (9) being immediately followed by 'reboot' (10)
step does NOT mean 'delete-old' requires 'reboot'. You can actually
skip the step 9, as steps 7 and 8 are what already made the files
obsolete, and the only problem (that I can think of) from skipping is
obsolete header files picked up when compiling, and removing those
doesn't require a reboot.
