Use this kernel for Havoc OS. The rom will become much better. And why aren't there any recent changelogs for the ROM?

Nice to see one more Kernel. I did test this https://github.com/Blacksuan19/kerne...52020-0313.zip

Here are my observations:
Pros:
1. Very smooth and fast (read more in cons), keeps the phone really cool
2. Good to see you have retained 300 Mhz minimum and I observed cores go to 300 Mhz very fast after tasks are done and stay there when idle
3. When the phone is idle CPU is at 300 Mhz also have seen current drain/draw is < 100 ma for 30% of times (and 40-50% of times its below 150 ma and some spikes around 200 ma - 250 ma at times) which is amazing, am sure we should get very good battery life with this.

Cons:
1. I saw few stutters at times, like freezes. I had to lock the phone n unlock it to release from those freezes (these are not due to any apps etc, faced on with this Kernel and when I went back to Optimus 10.5 (like 10.5 because it supports 300 Mhz min and not 10.6 ) I stopped seeing them, never saw any such things on optimus.
2. Even though cores go to 300 Mhz and stay there when idle, when phone is locked and nothing running in background, I saw 0% deep sleep, same settings/environment optimus sleeps like a baby

Please fix these two and this kernel is golden

Logs would be a lot more helpful for both of us

Sorry have been busy.
Am new to this kernel things etc, if there are any links on how to get logs (or you could let me know here), would re-flash your kernel when am back and share the logs with you.
