They don't compare. What I've done is a kernel replacement, not a firmware replacement. The other is a firmware replacement, not a kernel replacement.
The kernel is mostly invisible, while the firmware is VERY visible:
Kernel: processor control, low level sound routines, low level networking, clocking, charging, etc..
Firmware: the entire user interface and built in applications
Put another way: If you buy a house with property, the land and house's foundation could be considered the kernel, while the house structure itself would be the firmware.
