Wow....the interview was over and google's android was still running it's benchmark. Amazing stuff, can't wait till it's implemented into CM9. Thanks for this OP, it was a good read/video.

JBQ said that they actually merged some of the Linaro code into Google's internal master branch. You know you've written good code when Google accepts it into AOSP.

We've already merged some of Linaro's changes into AOSP (and therefore into Google's internal master branch), a few weeks ago. Some more are pending review and look promising.

Sounds pretty awesome, but I had never really planned on going back to AOSP... wonder if any of this would be able to be implemented into a Sense-based ROM? That would get me excited.

from what I gathered watching that video, it seemed that we will not benefit from this....

Seemed the changes done were kernel level and geared to the specific SoC the Nexus runs...saying they were CPU optimizations, and that it mainly was cleaning the "bad code" allowed in -o2 optimization, and once cleaned they were able to run through o3 optimization...

correct me if im wrong in that thinking though...

still pretty cool!
