[Q] Kernel Patching for Performance
I am an active linux user and am always building my own custom kernels for my machines here but have not even looked at compiling one for my galaxy s since I've only had it for a couple of months (2 weeks being replaced by futuretel).
But I was reading an interesting article today about some patches that have entered the 2.6.37 development stream and provide considerable performance increases and "is designed to automatically create task groups per TTY in an effort to improve the desktop interactivity under system strain."

I do understand that this kernel is still under development and that the patch itself has undergone significant changes during testing. Linus seems fairly pleased with its performance and I am going to be testing it on my laptop soon.
My questions to those familiar with the kernels for android are is this patch relevant to the operation of the android phones? and, do you feel that porting this sort of patch would be significantly beneficial to the android platform?
Obviously this patch will flow through naturally when the android system natively uses this kernel version but I was just curious.
