Yes, but this is no different to a normal upgrade (all agents restart
themselves to upgrade).

At the point where the upgrade gets stuck the state machine agents have
tried to shut themselves down and almost all workers inside the agent have
stopped in an orderly fashion - there's just one or two workers which are
refusing to stop. The unstick-upgrade plugin takes care of one of the final
steps that the agent would normally do (switching the tools symlink to
point to the version) and then restarts the agent (because it is unable to
do so itself). This should be quite safe.

There will be no hook runs that wouldn't happen after a normal upgrade

Marco has kindly merged unstick-upgrade into, so it
is now readily available.
