[REQUEST] How Do You Upgrade A Kernel?

So the phone manufacturer has provided kernel source and lets assume that it compiles and deploys fine.

What are the steps to upgrade the kernel to a newer version?

Lots of threads that I read suggest looking for another kernel that is based on a similar device and using that.
However, what happens if there is no similar device?

What steps do you take to upgrade a kernel in this case?

Would I just find the equivalent base in the android kernel source and git diff and patch each commit until I got to the version I wanted then try to fix any compile errors?
