Hi! Some of you may recognize me as the lead developer of CM10 nightlies for ace, and the codefireX nightlies, as well as the Andromadus Ace maintainer. I have decided to branch off the main kernel of the CM10 nightlies and codefireX nightlies due to some performance changes which don't seem to run on all devices. There may also be some more experimental patches included here prior to in the stable branch. This is due to working on making that kernel branch more stable for CM official and ALL users. Now all the boring stuff is out of the way ...Zanzibar (ZanzDroid), I'm sorry for this breaking our post:thanks experiment.

RandomBlame's CM builds ARE NOT OFFICIALLY SUPPORTED! This means please don't post that it doesn't boot if you're running one of his builds. I'm not at all interested in closed source development, so I will not troubleshoot

Using -mfloat-abi=hard again (benefits performance in both kernels. Some devices may not boot the performance kernel again).
Built with the newest CFX-Toolchain (linaro gcc4.6.3 instead of 4.7.3 due to performance). Read HERE to see how it differs from AOSP or Linaro's.
1031 and higher of codefireX nightlies are also using this custom toolchain, so no need to flash stable on top of 1031 or higher.
[*patched to linux kernel 3.0.49. Changelog available HERE
mm: slab: update (simonsimons34)
Revert "Updated DS2746 battery driver" (paulb_nl - from my quick testing it seems to have fixed the battery jumps)

DeathRay Flashlight mode (very bright) now works
v0.6 (NO RandomBlame CM builds or nightlies older than 1016 will not be officially supported due to new qcom api):
Spent hours porting 32 fb/video/display commits to bring up to date with CAF and CM's samsung d2 kernel for the new QCom Display API (fast as ****)
Add full boost pulse support to interactive gov
USB and unknown chargers now use HTC's AC ChargeMode. This means it uses HTC's AC temperature limits, and will switch to USB cable status if too hot. This is the best of both worlds and the same as plugging into your AC charger.
Convert any oom_adj values to oom_score_adj values for backward compatibility.
Update rotator to with CAF's jb_chocolate rotator changes.
cpufreq: interactive: run at fraction of hispeed_freq when load is low (final interactive commit to bring up to date with Google's interactive gov)
This is a stable kernel only change for stability (performance kernel is the same as v0.5)
Revert "arm: msm7x30: 1 higher pll2 clockstate to 1.7GHz+"
No more ****ty fast charge scripts (read new info).
Fast Charge now enabled by default on non usb storage devices (great for cheap car/wall chargers)
Added additional bus clockstate to stable kernel
Fixed the fast charge set on/off boot scripts FOR REAL
Fixed the fast charge set on/off boot scripts
Added fast charge, with enable/disable options
Made 1996/2016MHz clockstates more stable (at least for benchmarking)
I patched up to 3.0.46 Linux Kernel. Check either github link and click that commit for the full changelog listed in the commit summary.
Stability Improvements (reboot/blackscreen bug). These changes will be in the new nightlies as well. If you can't run the performance kernel, you still won't be able to. Stick with the nightlies or the "stable" kernel if on another JB build.
GCC updated to gcc-linaro-4.7-2013.02
GCC updated to gcc-linaro-4.7-2013.01
Cloog updated to 0.18.0
Ppl updated to 1.0

anyone I forgot
Like my work? Feel free to buy me a beer for early morning dev HERE
I think 4.1.1 is too old to use with 4.1.2 out now, so I really don't see myself making a kernel for old sense roms at all. Also there are issues with the video/kgsl drivers in this kernel and old sense roms.
Edit: We're going to be on ION soon anyway which won't boot on most pmem roms.
