Kies updates a whole bunch of other stuff that You want to keep updated. Those new updates are actually pretty solid. Samsung is doing a great job on them. Everytime Kies tells you there is an update, just do the following:

- Update via Kies (you will loose root, but all other data will be safe)
- Reroot using the insecure kernel from the Chainfire thread.
- Come back here and download the Stock kernel for that latest update (currently KE2)
- Flash the Stock kernel

You will have everything at the latest version with the latest kernel and rooted, after those steps.

So if you just did a Kies update to KE2 rom, you can use the Stock KE2 kernel now. No need to go back to KDD.
