You will almost certainly have to upgrade the entire system, since the
userland and kernel in OpenBSD are much more closely coupled than they are
in Linux. I know in 2.6 that ps(1) would quit working if you upgraded the
kernel and didn't upgrade the userland. I would definately recommend
updating both. The easiest way would be to upgrade to a snapshot.
