Is the Linux kernel still limited by Android?

If you say something like a dual-boot system then that implies that Ubuntu for Android would have it's own kernel. But given that Ubuntu for Android runs on top of the Android kernel implies a virtual machine situation (or some emulation) that is limited by what the underlying Android kernel supports. If the latter is true then the importance of this seems rather overhyped. This seems especially true if the presence of keyboard and external monitor make the phone like an Android tablet.
