Default Official cm 11 question

Why did the cm team go with using the old Mali drivers and not the newer r3p2? I'm currently using Temaseks v16 with 1.8.5 devil kernel with GPU control, and I gotta say its the smoothest experience I ever had! The newer Mali drivers are so good.

The impact on new mali r3p2 drivers on other devices using same kernel branch. It breaks a couple of other exynos devices. Unless someone ifdef the kernel source and enable both old/new mali drivers or make devices that git broken compatible.

Remember i9300 is not the only device using smdk4412 kernel branch.

Just a question, can I try the official CM11 without wiping all my data? I'm on the latest V16.
