OK, I've committed a package-menu-mark-upgrades command to the Package
Menu, bound to U.  This places the appropriate flags for upgrading
packages that can be upgraded.  M-x list-packages also issues a message
if any packages can be upgraded.

As for a M-x package-upgrade-all command, I'm not sure yet.  The code
written by OP is on the right track, but it also needs some additional
machinery for displaying what packages are going to be upgraded
(possibly using a Package Menu buffer?) and prompting the user.
