Kernel updates to Slakcware ARM OS installed on Raspberry Pi should follow which updates:
From rpi-update: https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update .
or
From slackpkg?

The Raspberry Pi is a "community supported" device and there are a few people who have made installer images or installable 'file system' images available. I would assume that the best option is to take any updated Kernel packages from the place you got your stuff from.

rpi-update will will give you the most recent kernel, drivers, firmware, etc from it's target repository. I have 3 pi's running with slackware arm current and each one has had rpi-update run on it after installing slackware arm.

rpi-update is made specifically to do that and it takes care of all the necessary housekeeping as long as you have your vfat boot partition, i.e. /dev/mmcblk0p1 mounted as /boot.
