BTW, I turned off BLN because it's draining battery. It keeps a wakelocks = no deep sleep.
I recommend to use VR io scheduler with conservative/lulzactive governor. They're really quick. It's really worth the effort to tweak the whole kernel. Do for example 100MHz till 800MHz, undervolt it, set your favorite governors and enjoy! Vibrator is also configurable via a sysfs interface. Gamma is too. I didn't look yet in the initd problem, but it's really weird for me. Sounds like an AOKP problem (or you didn't enable :P). If I got some time I'll merge the newest AOKP.
