Samsung has already released on their opensource website the kernels for 3 of the Galaxy S4 versions: the Gt-I9500, GT-I9505 and SGH-I337M. These version numbers stand for the International version with Exynos CPU, the International version with Qualcomm CPU and the Canadian Virgin Mobile version, in the same order.

So the average user has nothing to do with these files. However if you want to download the kernels you can do so by clicking on the download links below:
