== Precise SRU Justification ==

Reverting this patch means that samsung specific functionality(ie. rfkill, leds and so on) will not work on any systems not specifically white-listed in the samung-laptop module.  There has been only two people affected by the original bug, lp1012284.

Not reverting this patch would would mean an 'unknown' number of systems may run into issues when loading the samsung-laptop module.  According to bug lp1028151, there are at least 27 "Affects me too".  There is a work-around in this case, which is to blacklist the module. 

== Fix ==
Revert the following commit:

commit 9a2e71ce177a1602a0502fbcbb3f11e4bae584e4
