Let the judge agree on any of those reasons, and then come back here.
Or let Samsung drop out of the case without causing the GPLed sources to
be available to the respective customers in a reasonable time frame.

If neither of those two events happen (and in no court case so far
anything like that happened, so that should give a good clue about how
probable they are), your "perfectly fine" thesis seems quite shaky.

So far you are batting zero in that respect, for all the years of your
trumpeting around here.  That's not all that close to "perfect" unless
you are living in a fantasy world.
