This doesn't count under "no userspace breakage" doctrine.
Or rather, it shouldn't.

valgrind _compilation_ was broken by 3.0:
11 *valgrind-3.6.1-r1 (09 Jun 2011)
12
13 09 Jun 2011; Anthony G. Basile <blueness@gentoo.org>
14 +valgrind-3.6.1-r1.ebuild, +files/valgrind-3.6.1-linux-3.patch:
15 Fixed to build against linux-3.x, bug #370857

Was this fixed? Yes.
Will this break one more time? Of course!

case "${kernel}" in
- 2.6.*)
+ 2.6.*|3.*)
AC_MSG_RESULT([2.6 family (${kernel})])
