No, it means booting a single kernel on multiple SoCs. Basically going
back to prior to 3.7 we had to have a different kernel for each SoC
(tegra/imx/highbank/omap/versatile) and now we have a single kernel
for pretty much everything. DT tends to be one of the things that come
with that but it's not necessary or dependent.
