How does this affect users at all beyond the code quality issues that the developers also care about?

It's not like the issue is visible from userspace.

When I install a new kernel version, all my machines will use the same file name for the image:

/usr/src/linux/arch/x86/boot/bzImage

Not very signifigant, I agree, but still a userspace-visible change.
