The changes are pretty simple to add a tunable that Android can access to free some memory when needed. This is the kernel used for, well, Nexus devices.


And I merged this on cm-11 kernel, pretty simple commit too.

Becaus I didn't even know that commit exists I'll add it now, thanks.

So we should edit this line
Code:
int extra_free_kbytes = 0;
and writee there how many kbytes we want the kernel to free? so until it's 0 this commit has no effect, right?

No. That's a sysfs interface. When it's declared that way in sysctl.c it will create the file declared in .procname in /proc/sys/vm . As .procname is "extra_free_kbytes" you will get this file /proc/sys/vm/extra_free_kbytes where you can edit the value

Well, *supposedly* is for Android to ask the kernel to free some memory when needed; but you can also put a static value if you want.

Impossible, it shouldn't works also with the "After Final" build, caused by the new kernel...
