*  This is a custom ROM developed by Warrior1208. 
*  You are flashing this on your Samsung Galaxy SII(Intl) at your own peril.
*  I am not responsible for hard bricks, damages to SD Cards, thermonuclear war, 
*  or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.

Q. What is a toolchain?
Quote:

In software, a toolchain is the set of programming tools that are used to create a product (typically another computer program or system of programs). The tools may be used in a chain, so that the output of each tool becomes the input for the next, but the term is used widely to refer to any set of linked development tools.
A simple software development toolchain consists of a compiler and linker to transform the source code into an executable program, libraries to provide interfaces to the operating system, and a debugger. A complex product such as a video game needs tools for preparing sound effects, music, textures, 3-dimensional models, and animations, and further tools for combining these resources into the finished product.



Q. What is Linaro?

Quote:

Linaro is the place where engineers from the world's leading technology companies define the future of Linux on ARM. The company is a not-for-profit engineering organization with over 120 engineers working on consolidating and optimizing open source software for the ARM architecture, including the GCC toolchain, the Linux kernel, ARM power management, graphics and multimedia interfaces.

Amazing, thanks! Is this build based on Lysergic Acid's CM12 tree for the i9100? I didn't see him credited...

No. This is based on the Slim Sources(device and kernel tree). Had it been based on CM12 sources, I would have surely given the credit to Lysergic Acid.
Would soon fix all the bugs to provide an awesome experience.

That's even more amazing! So now LP ROMs will be easier to build and maintain, given that there are two different device trees for the phone.

Ya, so true. Firstly, I have to fix all the bugs, and then I have more plans to optimize this ROM and maybe build one-or-two more!
All the sources are free to use and available on my Git. Link in the OP!
Enjoy!
