Much more :victory:
I am 100% transparent in this. This kernel is a relatively small amount of my work. I looked at the Linux kernel and took patches for a lot of things and merged it into this kernel for whatever reason I decided. I have merged well over 100 patches from the mainline Linux kernel and I think these patches really do make a difference... you can make that judgement for yourself as well

The difference between my kernel and compilation kernels is that my kernel is not based off of any one persons kernel. I started from scratch on AOSP sources and merged in commit by commit to make sure I got what I think are the best solutions.

The best app I have found for controlling this kernels behavior is FauxClock so I will give you my setup in terms of FauxClock. I if I don't mention a setting that means I leave it stock.

My setup:

CPU:
162Mhz Min - 1512Mhz Max
Governor: Interactive OR Intellidemand for battery
MPD: off

GPU:
400Mhz
Governor: Interactive for performance OR simple/ondemand for battery
VSync: On

IOSCHED:
IO Scheduler: FIOPS
Readahead: 512
eMMC entropy Contribution: Off

Gamma Control:
I use the "obsanity_AMOLED" profile

Z-Control:
ZRAM Swap: On
ZRAM Diks Size: 180MB
Clear VFS Cache after Boot: On
Auto FS Writeback Delay Mode: On

Misc:
Dynamic fsync: Off
TCP Congestion Control: westwood

From what I could gather

Sound - faux interface
Gamma - faux
Hotplug - Franco
Interactive, on demand, Wheatley, lazy governors
