Default Surface Flinger memory leak supposedly fixed!

Ladies and gentlemen, I have the most amazing news. Pretty much the best news I can think of.
I have finally received word back from the Mali Developers. They revisited the issue and found that the fault was indeed in the Mali drivers.
"Following previous emails, the Nexus 10 issue that you have been mentioning has been fixed in the latest versions of the Mali driver."
It is, unfortunately, Google's responsibility to release this new driver version with the next Nexus 10 factory image. We can only hope that the fact that I/O has come and gone and the recent release of the Google Edition S4 and One on 4.2.2 does not mean that JB 4.3 or KLP are a long ways out.
So hopefully we'll see the drivers soon! They're supposed to be released here when ready!

I really hope they fix this issue. I turn off my tablet at night so its not a huge issue but on heavy usage days I'm guaranteed at least a reboot if not more.

Wow I am so happy. Good thing I didn't end up selling my tablet yet! Also seems like 4.3 is coming on July 24th, looking forward to it.

That sounds great! however... not sure if that is something that is going to be included in Android 4.3, if it was recently released Google would have to make a lot of testing before put that in Android 4.3, maybe it was distributed to them before, will see next week..

I am hoping with all my heart that this is baked into 4.3. I cannot STAND this issue any longer.

I also can't wait to have a stable system that runs without fault for days, without having to reboot. I use a auto-reboot app that launches everyday at 7:10 AM just after my alarm, no biggie but if I watch some html videos...
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9005, knox 0x1

Running latest leanKernel

Stupid Samsung. Ugh.

It was their mistake from the beginning. Idiots.

Not buying anything more from them for a while.

And how about doing something to fix the constant homepage redraw that I get. Now that is driving me mad.

I think that is related with the same memory leak.
