This is a near stock falcon 4.4.4 kernel built with the latest Linaro toolchain (Linaro GCC 4.9-2014.12) for all of those who prefer stock kernels and absolutely need those 10 extra points in Antutu

Differences from stock are just a few Cortex-A7 optimizations, F2FS patches from mainline 3.18 and linaro toolchain.

All credit goes to @bedalus, who started his kernel thread for Peregrine, fixed all the small bugs that made compiling with newer Linaro toolchains impossible and cherry picked all those F2FS patches.

Sources and tools used:
MotorolaMobilityLLC/kernel-msm
MotorolaMobilityLLC/vendor-qcom-opensource-wlan-prima
bedalus' patches
Christopher83's Linaro Toolchain

My repo, where all sources are merged

Changelog:
falcon_stock_4.4.4_linaro_4.9.3.zip
- stock kernel
- added necessary patches to make it compile with linaro
- some Cortex-A7 optimizations

falcon_kernel_4.4.4_v2.zip
- same as falcon_stock_4.4.4_linaro_4.9.3.zip
- filesystem patches in line with mainline linux 3.18
- removed some debug info

The zip can be flashed with TWRP or CWM. Not flashable through fastboot.

This is the stock kernel, so the batttery is as good as with stock kernel (you really can´t make it much better in any way). These screenshots are taken after some 7 hours of sleep.

Works pretty good on XT1031. Nice work! Any chance you could make a build with the kexec hardboot patch to use it with multirom?

Hi @knizmi

I said wait til I push a new branch, but I figure it's easier if you pull just a patch with
Code:
wget https://github.com/bedalus/moggy/commit/ead900a02071506c267fdebd292cbb2cdb31f4bd.patch
then you can apply it with
Code:
git am ead900a02071506c267fdebd292cbb2cdb31f4bd.patch
This is my preferred way to grab commits. Did you add my repo as a remote?

Thanks a bunch, this should really make merging those patches easy!

I have added your repo as a remote now. I was fighting with git last week quite a bit (never used that devil's tool before), but now I think I am getting used to it. For my first build I've just "patched" those files with gedit...

Thanks for the heads up, but compiling someone else's sources doesn't make me a dev ;)
