No need to rebuild the entire system to change the kernel. Just install
the new kernel and recompile the modules you use and thats it.

If i however upgrade glibc, gcc and binutils, then it is about time
for me to rebuild everything.

BTW: I tried 2.5.58 last week and ALSA worked fine for me out of the 
box. The only thing that did not compile was UML.
