I have multiple Samsung SSDs here, most used on FreeBSD-only systems. 
11-CURRENT had a problem a couple of months back, but it was fixed in a 
few hours.

The systems on 10-STABLE work perfectly.

I do not have a USB backlight keyboard, though, and it does sound like 
most of the problems are in that area.
