i saw one benchmark of linaro with dalvik patches and they're getting the same score i did on cataclysm with bionic/dalvik optimization patches
it has nothing to do with battery life and background services. all it is is a toolchain used to build roms and kernels. just because the developers of the linaro toolchain published that their toolchain improved performance two years ago, some people now believe it improves performance. compared to what they used as a comparison, it did. but they used an old toolchain to compare it to. but the google toolchain does just as good as the linaro toolchain, if not better. linaro is just a buzzword, nothing more. people add it into their titles for their roms or kernels to make people think that their rom or kernel is special, but it doesnt make a difference in reality. it is just a buzzword.
