[KERNEL]intersectRaven's Kernel - 20130410_15XX

Thread Closed Email Thread
Development Goals:
- stability
- energy savings due to more efficient algorithms (whether theoretical or not is unimportant)
- strictly no overclocking unless approved by the manufacturer or my source base integrates it (also, even if my source base integrates it, expect no support for it)
- no undervolting as well unless the manufacturer approves it since it's relatively pointless IMHO...
- all improvements should require MINIMAL user interaction (e.g. you don't need to do anything except flash the kernel or at the very least use SetCPU or the like to set fixed options)
- stability

*I've uploaded versions for 4.2.1 stock but hasn't been tested thoroughly yet. Please test and comment if it works for you.
**This section contains the STABLE kernels (i.e. tested to be stable for at least a day or two with no problems) for TEST kernels, proceed to the 3rd post.

Latest Kernels Here
- merged recent changes from CM for ARP fix
- disable CRC for mmc (needs testing since I'm not convinced this is needed yet although maybe it applies also to our onboard memory/storage)
- use the right timer for our CPU
- add fix from faux where a Code Aurora update failed to get applied to the Mako board file

- enable unaligned memory accesses in decompressor
- USB autosuspend from CodeAurora with tweak from franco to prevent data drops in some cases
- updated to 3.4.36

- added some GPU optimizations
- row scheduler improvements from CodeAurora
- Sound Control by faux
- reverted Prima WiFi fix...let's just wait for official fix from Google...

- updated compiler to Linaro 2013.02 release
- added lzo unaligned access optimization from linux-next plus
- added CodeAurora's WiFi fix
- added "bouncing cow" fix from 3.9 pre-release tree
- workqueue and ksm now use the new hashtable implementation
- new scatter library optimization
- updated to .35
- set the interactive governor as default
- new optimization flags
- disabled some of the Prima (WiFi) debug things taken from franco's repo

- updated to 3.4.34

- BFQ v6
- more optimizations

- updated to .33
- more optimizations

- updated to .32
- reworked some patches from CodeAurora
- reworked some GPU things to try and resolve possible cause for random resets triggered by the MDP
- cleaner merge of 4.2.2 additions together with ramdisk changes for offline charging improvement (if I'm reading it correctly)
- recompiled to have different color calibrations

- updated to 3.4.28
- with USB msm_hsic_wakelock patches and all previous goodies
- further commits from upstream

- updated to 3.4.26

- updated to 3.4.25
- input data sending by packet

- updated compiler and some improved compiler flags
- some USB tweaks for minimized power consumption
- some "random" things
- thermal sensor correction

- new compiler flag
- optimize apply_slack
- use atomic_dec based implementation for mutex

- removed redundant IRQ disable call
- integrated Qualcomm's HCI wakelock fix as pointed out by franco
*this hasn't been really tested but since franco already did on his kernel, it should be safe to integrate
**as to why I decided to release without thorough testing, I think the HCI wakelock is an important issue to some people and judging that it affects power consumption, decided to make an exception...also refer to point 1...

- integrated updates to interactive governor from Google
- ROW IO scheduler from Qualcomm

- lowered L2 voltage at 384Mhz
- added lower voltages for 8064v1.1 (FASTER binned CPUs)
- efficiency improvement in frequency switching algorithm

- updated to 3.4.24
- integrated BFQ v5.1
- efficiency optimizations for the GPU ION memory handler
- added the 1MB readahead optimization

- updated to 3.4.23
- removed alignment trap disabling since it seems to cause some kernel faults in certain situations
- disabled cleancache since it eventually consumes all memory which causes a kernel fault as well
- integrated ARM optimized RWSEM algorithm
- dynamic sync control from faux123

- replace lib/string and lib/memcpy with GNU implementation
- enabled cleancache

- uses Linaro compiler 2012.11 release

- initial release
- uses Linaro compiler 2012.10 release
- compiler flags for tuning
- software alignment trap disabled (hardware supports unaligned accesses which is faster)
- asynchronous compaction in lowmemorykiller driver (adapted from Steve Kondik's patch for the N7 kernel)
- updated LZO compression to upstream version
- replace do_fsync call in fs/sync.c to fget_light
- added ARM optimized AES and SHA1 routines
- tweak to the automated scheduler grouping algorithm

Just flashed and I will report later, but so far seems very smooth, Ive noticed in most phones the more you keep the kernel stock the smoother it feels, im noticing with other kernel devs pack so much different features into a kernel it really starts lagging.

Just flashed the latest test kernel; all seems well so far and will let you know how it goes today. The only thing I tweaked is changing from cfq to bfq; do you recommended that or sticking with cfq or deadline IR?

Whoa! I haven't seen you since the original nexus one and I loved your kernel on that. Oh crap. Too much decisions now.

I flashed the stable kernel this morning and so far its really smooth. I think I'll be sticking to this kernel if battery life is good.
