I did 9.3 to 11.0 using freebsd-update. I had no choice since 10.x would not boot on my system. 9 and 11 boot just fine. It worked, but I had to patch freebsd-update to get there. I don't find it anymore, but it did involve adding a comma in a long string. It should still be available in the archives.
