Got the kernel compiling and booting with Linaro with the -Os tag, optimizing for size. But there is hardly a difference between my previous toolchain. Optimizing for speed (Linaro is focusing on this), breaks dma.. and results in a non-compilable kernel. Thinking of fixing it by some ugly hacks, maybe when I finally got some time again.

For a small Linaro testbuild:

Note there are hardly any differences in speed at first glance. I could use some testers for stability though

downloading now, will feedback soon

edit: No noticeable difference on heroine++, although WiFi doesn't work...
can't wait for future releases

SIO scheduler
@Riemer

If I have the sio.ko file, can we implement SIO in this kernel - LV 1.2? Or I risk to end in a bootloader?

Cheers, and ignore my pm, I've done that thing!

Edit:
I have tried to make a folder called sio in modules, put the file there, set symlinks in updater-script, but it is not visible when trying to change scheduler from No-Frills.
Tried also to put only the sio-sched.ko file without folder (in modules), set symlinks in updater-script, but then again, it is not visible.

Giving my research on this thing, I found out that you cannot put this into modules (at least not on this kernel), and some scripts are pointing out to "/sys/block/mmc*/queue".

How can we implement this thing? I want to see if there are any difference between SIO and NOOP because on ICS, SIO works better...

Would it be too much to ask to make the max frequency cap at 806.4mhz instead of 748mhz? Please?
I have been searching for 806mhz kernel everywhere and I cannot find it so if you could compile it for me, that would be wonderful!

Well a while back I had a little project to compile my own kernel and I managed to do it, it was OC-able to 762 MHz I think. Although I didn't build any modules with it so Wi-Fi didn't work. If you want I can build the modules too and give it to you. Its highly untested so I can't guarantee it will work, I only used it for a day if it works out ok I might finish it. I taught noone needs it when we have LV and Fly

What toolchain were you using to compile it? I am using code sourcery and everytime I try to compile, I get the -mno-unaligned-access error.
It seems you have gotten it to work. How?

Try to remove the "-mno-unaligned-access" flag from the makefile. I dropped looking into linaro as it gave me stability problems. Let me know if you find anything interesting

Cheers, Riemer

Is it possible to control the clock speed of the GPU in the Hero?
