That's what I did. Seems to be the easiest way to do it.
Like I said, the two biggest things that I've seen that are different would
be that it couldn't find the kernel on boot (I had been running
kernel.GENERIC under 4.3, and evidently in the upgrade it copied the 4.3
kernel to kernel.prev and never installed a file called kernel for 4.4.
Simple remedy on boot was to put in a named kernel file, simple remedy once
into the machine is to just copy kernel.GENERIC to kernel).
The only other thing is that ftp and telnet seem to be shut off in 4.4.
SSH works fine, however.
