No, the src/lib/libz is --- as you note --- for userland.  It is not
used by the kernel. 
Note that the patch includes updates to the kernel source as well.
Also note that `savecore' statically links libz, so it must be
recompiled and reinstalled also.  I don't believe there are any other
programs in the base system that statically link libz.
