This is standard procedure for those writing code for Linux. Off-load your testing to your customers.

The Linux kernel people never bothered to test their code on Samsung drives. Hence, if the kernel does not work on Samsung drives it is up to Samsung to fix the problem.

The ONLY way to verify your code works on a piece of hardware is to test it on that piece of hardware!

I received a big check to shut me up.
