I just inherited a remote 4.8 box...Having not used RELENG_4 in eons,
just wanted to check if it's safe to "live upgrade" (make
installworld/kernel ; mergemaster) directly to 4.11 (world/kernel
already built; waiting to install). /usr/src/UPDATING doesn't seem to
indicate this is out of the question.
