No, SMPng and KSE are two different tasks. SMPng is multithreading the kernel
to allow concurrent access to the kernel. KSE is changing the kernel to
support physical concurrent threads of execution within a logical process, if
that makes any sense. Either one is potentially useful w/o the other, but both
together will build upon each other.
