Booting Linux using UEFI can brick Samsung laptops
 
Hi everyone,



I just have read this:



http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Booting-Linux-using-UEFI-can-brick-Samsung-laptops-1793958.html



And I also found this:




https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-cdimage/+bug/1040557



It seems that kernel's drive "samsung-laptop" can brick Samsung
laptops, when trying to boot using UEFI.

It happens on Ubuntu... Can anyone tell me how it is on Debian? Does
Debian's kernel use this driver too?



Thanks.
