There is no real impact that you will see as an end user. Previously
Google had their own fork of the kernel specifically for Android. They
worked to get their changes merged back into the mainline kernel. What
this will really mean is easier and faster development for the Android
developers. At a guess it will also mean if there are any
improvements, for non Android specific parts of the kernel they can
more easily submit the patches.

I'm guessing you wont see any of these things in a normal desktop
kernel unless you enable them when you compile and probably wouldn't
be used.

At least that's what I've picked up, happy to be corrected if my
understanding is wrong.
