    54         <para>If Glibc needs to be upgraded to a newer version, (e.g.  from
    55         glibc-2.31 to glibc-2.32), it is safer to rebuild LFS.  Though you
    56         <emphasis>may</emphasis> be able to rebuild all the packages in their
    57         dependency order, we do not recommend it.  </para>
     54        <para>If Linux kernel needs to be upgraded (for example, from
     55        5.10.17 to 5.10.18 or 5.11.1), nothing else need to be rebuilt.
     56        The system will keep working fine thanks to the well-defined border
     57        between kernel and userspace.  Specifically, Linux API headers
     58        need not to be (and should not be, see the next item) upgraded
     59        alongside the kernel.  You'll need to reboot your system to use the
     60        upgraded kernel.</para>
