Are you upgrading through the normal repos?  I you are using synaptic
(or terminal) you will not have to upgrade through all the other ones.
If you are building it, you may need to make sure all the back end
supports that kernel version, though it seems like it should (i've never
compiled my own kernel personally)  You only want to keep your last good
working kernel, in case the new one has bugs/regressions
