Nope, the loader can load stuff from other partitions, even from some strange
ones like msdos ;), so theoretically it should be possible to have /boot, or
even /boot/kernel, on another partition (it may require to tweak loader config
files, though), but I really do not see any reasons behind such weird setup.
