Linaro franco.Kernel
-O3 Optimized - v3.4.67+ base updated - 4.8.2 Linaro toolchain

I forked Franco sources and I mantain my sources in sync with his git changes.

Please let me know what do you think about the speed, stutters compared to franco builds.

Code changes in Linaro version from Franco stock:
- -O3 and other compiler optimizations
- Fixed warnings
- Removed many debug options
- Fixes from codeaurora to camera, mdp, video output...
- Add faux sound support, and faux sound fixes, YES YOU CAN USE FAUX APP!
- Enabled kernel wakelock stats
- Latest Linux upstream 3.4.y
- Many Slub, slab, slob allocators optimizations and bugfixes
- Removed some usless flag in defconfig (useless debugs, ntfs support...)
- Tweaks to make it compile with gcc 4.8.2
- Improvements to battery charging, improved detection of fully charged and others fixes.
- Bugfixing to mmc, random, slub, xz compression
- Other small fixes, see my git
- Franco Audio patches not included for now, I prefer Faux solution, let's see in next builds

Code changes in Prima version from Linaro:
- Updated prima drivers (wifi, 3g, bluetooth) to 3.2.3.191+
- The .zip add 2 new files to /system needed for new prima drivers, if you want to switch back to normal version you'll have to dirtyflash your ROM before flashing old/another kernel

Franco explained better than I can do.

1. My phone exploded, HALP!
A: I don't answer to problems without a log. The log file is in /proc/last_kmsg. Paste it on pastie.org and link it on your post. Logcats are useless for Kernel purposes, don't bother posting them.
2. This kernel works on Y or X rom?
A: This is one of the worse questions you can ask on my threads. This is a Nexus, it works on every rom you can possibly imagine.
3. OMG BETTARY SUCKZ, IT DEAD IN 45 MINUTAS, HALP!
A: As you can imagine I don't build kernels to decrease battery life. All the battery life problems come from your apps, either Facebook, or Maps, or some Location Service being enabled etc etc. Check your damn wakelocks and fix them, the kernel is not responsible for them.
4. Touch Control doesn't work in rXXX release, you suckas, fix plixe!
A: I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for a fix, I can tell you I don't have the solution. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you leave now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I ignore you.

I can add:
5: Can i switch from your kernel to Franco one anytime I want?
A: Yes, you can do it without flash anything.
6: My phone boots normally then the screen goes off and it reboots
A: Known BUG in DMA, don't let the screen goes off until f.ku color are set.
7: I'm on franco Milestone/nighly #xxx how can I flash your kernel?
A: Clear f.ku app data, then flash my kernel.
8: Can I use f.ku (franco.Kernel Updater) with your Kernel?
A: Yes, you can.

No errors, I fixed 2 things on mako_hotplug.c adding __cpuinit in 2 functions.
Some warning... that also appears using google toolchain.
