Do you mean you have a stock Samsung, unrooted, MJ8 kernel or you want to flash a stock, unrooted, Samsung kernel?

MJ8 is only for Android 4.3, MJ8 firmware and is post, (after), MGG and is Knox enabled. Therefore if you are rooted and have a custom recovery on this firmware, you've already blown your Knox flag and warranty. See #1.4 of Knox Security & locked bootloader on new firmwares to check.

Odin flashable custom, not stock, kernel .tar files will also blow the Knox flag with the, "possible", exception of CF-Root which is a stock rooted kernel. However, you will not be able to install a custom ROM or recovery afterwards without blowing the Knox flag as explained in the link.
