Well, B15 has modules rc1 is compiled.
I had no sources when preparing the modules and that caused some problems (cifs for example) . Apart from that if we are talking about the same functionality it should be the same (such as overclocking undervolting etc)
But some modifications are not possible with modules. Such as swap support or some code level optimizations such as optimized crc or sha1 algorithms.
I am using the same modules in the new compiled version and I will keep improving them. In future this will let us use new kernels or maybe wireless drivers without having the source code.
