Kushan Kernel [I9505] [Touchwiz Lollipop]

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this kernel
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 *
 */
This is my first kernel and I will be adding more and more features gradually.
My main goal is to provide a stable and awsome kernel with great performance and battery life to users


Kernel Features:

- Based on Samsung Open Source Kernel Sources - XXUHOA7 Lollipop
- Compiled Latest Linaro Toolchain - 4.9.3-03.2015
- Added Stweaks kernel support
- Optimized Stweaks for better perfomance and battery life
- Added Faux Sound Support
- Compiled with neon float
- Added Voltage Control
- Added some I/O schedulers
- Added many CPU Governers like Lionheart, interactive and many more
- Disabled Android Logger
- Enabled zRam
- Added a Network Speed Tweak
- Removed TIMA crap
- Fixed Selinux memory leak upon loading policy
- Added Init.d support
- Added BusyBox support and included
- Set Selinux to Permissive
- Automatically removes all the knox crap
- Automatically removes all the old kernel settings
- Automatically does loki patch

More features will be gradually added

For best results just use the default settings without changing anything else but only change the following mentioned below for best results...

Disable zRam (Enable it only if you are a hardcore gamer)
Disable Android Logger
Disable Fast Charge (As support is not yet added)
Leave everything else to default also the profile to default

You can always experiment with different features turned off or on and report back if it improves performance

Kushan, do you think this can fix wifi not working when using your TW Lollipop on a T-mobile S4? I'm not willing to upgrade baseband and modem without knowing if I'll be able to revert back or even work properly.
I tried to find ausdim v2 kernel but I failed to find a download link.
Thank you for your awesome work!

Optimized Stweaks for better perfomance and battery life
"Optimized Stweaks for better perfomance and battery life"
Kushan, do you mean this optimized comes as default of the added Stweaks ?
