I seem to remember while reading around at that time somewhere it said ``the linux kernel will be samsung-safe at 3.8'' or similar (as luck would have it I can't find that reference now that I want to share it).

For this kernel update I decided to go with 3.7.10. Yeah, the 3.7 series
is EOL, but I've heard about some broken drivers in 3.8.x that make me

So I'm suspecting that maybe a few weeks ago Pat was planning to upgrade the kernels to 3.8, but found these other driver issues and so changed his mind and went 3.7.10 instead.
The $64 question is: are these new kernels samsung-safe or not? If I hadn't read about 3.8 being the first samsung-safe kernels I would have gone ahead with these new kernels and tried booting my samsung using uefi. But the possibility of bricking has made me very
