They shouldn't no. When you install a new kernel just make sure you
don't copy the new header files to /usr/include/linux|asm unless you're
going to redo Glibc too. Well, you can do it (i know most of us have
been doing it for years and years without problems) and it'll probably
not fail on you. But kernel boys are adament about it that we shouldn't
follow that practice.
