You may remember me from my SkyDragon kernels for N6/M8/M7/G3 among other devices, I've been off XDA for a year or so, quietly making kernels and roms for myself and personal friends. Decided to come back to show the OP3 some love under my own moniker while the team is on hiatus.
This is the kernel I use as my daily driver, I'm not really looking to add things so if you want more, please find someone/thing else. My goal here to get as much performance out of our device(s) as possible without sacrificing any battery life or stability whatsoever. No Ofast or ffast-math flags that break IEEE and math operations. No beta toolchains. I compile my own toolchains from recent stable release, build them optimizing and targeting a specific processor instead of the whole architecture, and then I use those to build my kernels that are optimized for that same processor. So this kernel is meant to be as stable stock, all the performance, and none of the loss in battery. Anyways, on with the show..
♦Kernel supports all OP3/OP3T devices running OOS OpenBeta 31(OP3) or 22(OP3T)(Note: *should* still work fine on stable)
♦Kernel source is based on official OnePlus 3/3T openbeta source code
♦Kernel has been compiled targeting msm8996 specifically
♦Compiled with my custom Linaro 5.5 toolchain with graphite & LTO targeting msm8996
♦No user setup required - optimal settings already applied
♦No user clock-speed modifications ♦
♦Flar2 sleep/wakegesture features ♦ (Disabled by default, no vibration, enable with EX App)
♦Stock wake gestures still have vibrate functionality ♦
♦Swappiness set to zero by default ♦ (we have plenty of ram)
♦vfs_cache_pressure set to zero by default ♦ (we have plenty of ram)
♦ZRAM disabled ♦ (why write to slow storage when we have all the ram)
♦Maple IO Scheduler set to default ♦ (IMO best balance of performance/battery life)
♦Westwood TCP Congestion Profile ♦ set to default (Personal preference)
♦CRC Check Toggle-able ♦ (disabled by default)(~%30 performance boost when disabled)
♦FSYNC Toggle-able ♦
♦Boeffla's LED Notification ♦
♦Savoca's KCAL Control ♦
♦Fast Charge support for PC charging (1amp instead of .5amp) ♦

Kernel zip tries to disable DM-Verity and forced encryption, you may need root however in order to boot.
Install if on something else: If in doubt, download this, flash openbeta(30/21) zip from OnePlus, immediately reboot back into twrp, swipe to allow modifications, install this kernel, install magisk/supersu, profit.
If you're already on this: you can just flash my latest kernel zip and profit.
Kernel has been thoroughly tested but if you somehow find an issue or just want to leave feedback, that's always appreciated ^^
You can find changes(changelog) by looking at my posted source. You can also find my custom toolchain's, crosstool-ng, and other sources listed there.
