Unfortunately, the ABI has been changed an so, the kernel packages have a new version number, so all the third party kernel modules you might have installed need to be recompiled. Also, the linux-restricted-modules have to be reinstalled, but it is available via the official repositories.

So, to receive the upgrade, do:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install linux-restricted-modules
