Default [KERNEL] CM7 Nightly kernel with OC/RAM hack + tweaks

Howdy,

I've been using the CM7 nightly builds for a while now and figured it'd be nice to have a kernel that's based on CM7 with overclocking, RAM hack and couple of other tweaks. This kernel is pretty similar to the volkKernel but I wanted to have my own

Changes:
* Overclocking up to 1500 mhz (only through pimp my cpu at the moment)
* Default I/O scheduler of NOOP

I'll try to keep it up to date with the latest CM7 kernel sources.

Hmmm pardon me for asking, but why is it a 32mb RAM hack now instead of 64mb? Is it to resolve the gallery bugs?

I am using the original cpujauste o/c code that's why it only works with pimp my CPU. ill look into the others tomorrow to get that working

The 64mb hack caused issues for people with 1080p recording and the gallery. ill try it again and see how it works

ok, i found some bugs.
1. Reboot doesn't work. I guess thats because of the 32MB Ram Hack (for the vorkkernal, reboot doesn't work either)
2. After running a couple of hours, you only get around 50% of your CPU performance. Maybe the scheduler isn't optimized well. I recognized it by playing n64oid and it has lagged. Also I only get 3900 points at Antutu instead of ~5000 points.

I think it's actually booting at ~700mhz by default so unless you set it up in pimp my cpu it'll stay at ~700 mhz. Probably why it's lagging.

We need more people working on kernels, thanks for doing so. Any improvements on battery life? Personally I find CM7 battery life to be pretty bad.
