If you follow /usr/src/UPDATING, that should cover any irregularities
in updating from version to version.  It may be worth updating to 2.2,
then 2.8, then I think 3.2, just because those seem to be the major
releases where there were changes in the upgrade path.  I haven't
tried it like that, so this is an educated guess.

Don't forget to upgrade your Hammer filesystems too.
