Thanks for the link. That is the source code for the SM-G800F. I downloaded G800FXXU1ANG1 (took almost 20 hours), extracted the kernel sources, build it, flashed it on my phone - and it worked. Maybe I will post a little tutorial on how to compile and flash your own kernel.

What is the numbering scheme of kernel? I already had a G800FXXU1ANJ2 installed.

I found an explanation of the firmware versioning scheme here: samsung-firmware-version-number.html

So version part of G800FXXU1ANG1 is NG1 which stands for N=2014, G=July, 1=1st release.
G800FXXU1ANJ2 is N=2014, J=October, 2nd release.

So the kernels released on the Samsung Open Source page might be a bit older. But not every time the firmware (which also includes the Android system in addition to the kernel) is changed, the kernel has to be adjusted too. So a firmware with PDA version G800FXXU1ANJ2 might still contain the same kernel as PDA version G800FXXU1ANG1.

At least the kernel of G800FXXU1ANG1 is based on a 3.4.39 kernel.

Country codes
If you check for available firmware for all G800[F/H/Y/M] devices you will find multiple versions with some of them having _MEA, _SER, _SWA, _LA postifxes.
According to this thread it should be a country code:
SER: RUSSIA
SWA: SOUTH WEST ASIA
MEA: unknown (maybe MIDDLE EAST ASIA?)
LA: unknown (could be ATLANTIC, as kernel config for G800H LA is named: msm8228-sec_atlantic3geur_defconfig)
SKZ = KAZAKHSTAN
