It's just the Linux kernel sources. It will help our kernel devs with features such as clock speed and voltage control, along with some stability improvements. Because the Linux kernel is licensed under the GNU GPL, Samsung is obliged to release the kernel sources for every public firmware release with a new kernel.
Also, I'm sure we'll continue to receive firmware updates for a while although probably not to newer Android versions.
