Removed RTB(interrupt) logging entirely
Various changes merged from the Razer Phone 2 and Snapdragon 855
/* Notice */
Both OnePlus 5 and 5T is supported.
Only OxygenOS is tested at the moment, but it is likely that the kernel will work with other ROMs thanks to the use of AnyKernel2 by osm0sis, though you may encounter minor issues.
Feel free to tip me which commits are needed to fix other ROMs.
/* f2fs */
This kernel fully supports f2fs for /data and I encourage everyone to use f2fs with my kernel for better performance.
See here as to why you might want f2fs.
To use f2fs, download zip files from http://arter97.com/browse/f2fs
Flash f2fs_tools_for_twrp.zip from TWRP. This won’t format your /data partition.
This will replace TWRP's f2fs tools with the latest version and pass the correct parameter to mkfs.f2fs, which is necessary.
This needs to be done everytime you enter TWRP, if you want to re-format to f2fs.
After formatting, or flashing a new ROM or an OTA, /vendor’s fstab needs to be changed.
Flash f2fs_fstab.zip to convert fstab to f2fs again. This won’t format your /data partition.
/* Disclaimer */
Your warranty is now void.
I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this kernel
before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.
