This is correct, of course, but keep in mind, there aren't a lot of good
reasons to do this.
* If you are trying to build stable, you are missing the userland changes.
* If you are trying to "optimize" your system, that's not a good

userland out of sync with the kernel.
* If you are trying to develop new drivers or features in the kernel,
you are leaving out a way to test your development (building source).
About the only time I've found reason to check out src/sys/ without src/
is when I'm impatient to test out a new machine, in which case, I'll
check out src/sys/, start a compile, and while the compile is running,
switch to another screen and fetch the rest of src/
