The GPLv2 did not do that, the fundamental freedom to run code on any hardware is very much in the GPLv2. A change to that concept results in a license that is not "similar in spirit"
As has been explained repeatedly, you have the freedom to run the code on any hardware you want. What you don't have is the freedom to distribute GPLv3'ed code as part of hardware that forbids the user to run modified versions.
