[kernel patches,performance] lock contention, removal - other tweaks
Greetings to all
since I just recently stumbled upon the following kernel patchset [PATCH] mm/vmalloc: Introduce DEBUG_VMALLOCINFO to reduce spinlock contention]
and am successfully running it on my desktop kernel (3.13) with significant smoothness and interactivity improvements
I'd thought - why not let others on XDA know about it
I'm not sure if it'll apply cleanly to AOSP, AOKP, CM11, or stock kernel source of the G-Pad 8.3
but it's good to have it at the back of one's mind, that there's even more potential for smoothness
Within the following days I'll see if I can find additional improvement related to 3.4 kernel source and especially our device
but there's not much time due to studies & job - nevertheless I'll try to do my best to contribute to make the experience on this device the best as possible (how I miss the good ol' days on the SGS, GT-i9000
in a nutshell I'll add & post additional patches or patchsets to this thread
if this is the wrong subforum I apologize in advance and please move the thread to the relevant sub-forum as you see fit - thanks !
