The book I'm reading, "The Complete Joy of Home Brewing" says just to add the priming sugar/syrup to the bottom of the bottling bucket and siphon the beer right in. That being said, anything more than that (i.e. whirlpool idea) should be more than adequate to mix. If I'm not mistaken, the reason you don't want to stir too much is because it will add oxygen.

And it can disturb the nastiest that will inevitably still transfer via siphoning etc. that have settled to the bottom. The less you have to do with beer the better is a rule I found helpful. I've read the Complete Joy of Homebrewing and How to Brew , and it's interesting that even those books don't really agree 100% on everything, and then compare it to things people do on here, or just normal people who brew and you get a variety of information, some more right than others but in the end about all they agree on is cleaning and sanitation is of the utmost importance and hot and cold break are very important.
