Of course it is.  It just means that you can only distribute the
resulting kernel under the GPL.  (Presuming the kernel is under
the revised BSD license, of course.)

If you only care about modules distributed separate from the kernel
and for run-time loading only then they remain GPL and the kernel is
unaffected.

Come on Greg, you know this...
