Usually nothing. Some programs may read /netbsd to get kernel
symbols to access internal kernel structures, but even those
regularly talk to the running kernel instead via /dev/ksyms. You
have to point explicitely to /netbsd to make them use it.
The kernel file on the boot partition has a different format to be
understood by the RPI bootloader. Those few programs that may read
/netbsd wouldn't understand it, so only for such special cases you
may need /netbsd.
