Disclaimer to moderators:
Slight OT is fine, but when users decide to act stupid they should be dealt with with the appropriate means - its really annoying for me when OT turns crazy. Please put the warning/ban hammer anytime any of you think there's lack of respect and/or too much unwanted OT crap - but if it doesn't meet this criteria let the OT posts alone. Thank you.

Cheers!

I think the only thing I haven't merged yet is controls for headphone volume boost. Other standard things are already there. Due to the unfortunate fact that we still don't have a custom recovery I haven't touched the ramdisk, so you're just flashing the actual Kernel binary (plus the device tree files that are bundled to it) through the bootloader. It's really straight forward though.
I wouldn't expect any magical battery improvements yet. Although I've made some custom patches to reduce needlessly cpu idle wakeups (don't confuse this with wakelocks, totally different things), and reducing the load average, I doubt there will be any magical enhancements. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if you get 5-10% better screen on time.

Also merged some upstream patches which gave me roughly 5-10% better Geekbench results on both single and multi threaded tests due to lower lock contention & reduced overhead.

Made sure ZRAM was properly set up too, which didn't seem to be the case by looking through the entire Google's device tree.

There's other things on my patches, but nothing groundbreaking.

Everything is in my github too. You know my approach, no bull****, so don't ask me for merge/add retarded crap.
