I've got to agree with everyone: Eugene's kernel is awesome. I'm running it stock (no OC, etc) and I've definitely noticed it's snappier all around, the battery life seems to be extended, and I'm not having wonky autobrightness issues like I was before. I've had zero FCs, too. And for the record, I just wiped Dalvik when I flashed the kernel, and I've had no issues.
