Default [Kernel][Overclock][V2] Overclock kernel with boot menu for 4.4 Kitkat [Fandroid]

Thanks to XperiaSTE team for the overclock kernel source first. I just did the config and compile but nothing else.

This kernel will overclock your device to 1.15GHz. The overclocking will provide a better performance and a smoother user experience.
I'm using a kexec multiboot kernel on my device, so I didn't test the kernel packed as elf format. It should be good because I have done flashing the self-built kernels several times.

The overclock source doesn't seems to be the latest but everything works~ Maybe that's because the modules in initramfs? (I did nothing to initramfs)

It's nearly impossible for me to upload the kernel on something like devhost/mediafire, so sorry for that. Could someone upload it on these sites please?

V2 Changelog:
1) Use GCC 4.9 Linaro to compile.
2) Change the SLQB allocator to SLUB. I don't really think SLQB is stable.
3) use 2G/2G user/kernel split. It seems to have a better performance.
4) PID namespace
5) NOTE:NO recovery in V2! Instead of recovery, the kexec multiboot menu by @percy_g2 is added. Big thanks to percy_g2. For how to use it, see Link:http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...-menu-t2647623
* To enter boot menu you should press the power key when vibrate

Finally, sorry for my poor English
Hope you like the kernel~

Thanks for your support!

by doing diff -u to the two xperiap_defconfig, the configs seem to be same.
So XperiaSTE did nothing more to the overclocked kernel.
therefore the config isn't changed and the only change is in the code.

Doing diff to the whole source tree will take much time so i didn't do it
By the github commit the changes seem to be all related to overclocking.

you can read cm-11.0 and overclock branches's commits

Thanks for the kernel!
Just a suggestion for anyone thinking about flashing it right away:
Wait a couple of days/weeks for someone to do some testing, you could fry your motherboard (happened to me on my previous 2 phones).
I'm not saying this kernel will do that, but it's just a precaution.

It's a small time period, understand me please
I was running OC kernels on my previous phones and the motherboard frying happend months after use,
I'm not saying that this is the situation with this specific kernel, these are just my previous experiences,
and it was just to warn people
