[Kernel][EAS][OOS-N] Helix Kernel
Helix Kernel for the OnePlus 5!

Disclaimer: Despite everything being tested before release, anything can go wrong, and the one held responsible shall be you and you only. Don't come crying that your phone ate your cat after flashing my kernel, because, needless to say, I will just be blown away laughing at you.
To provide a more battery-oriented kernel based on the rock solid EAS-based RenderZenith kernel, by my fellow developers and mentors @RenderBroken and @joshuous and, as well as anyone else on XDA probably, to learn and encourage others to learn more about EAS - the latest endeavour from Google, Linaro, ARM and many others to improve both the efficiency and performance of Android powered devices.

-> Based on the wonderful RenderZenith kernel
-> Up-to-date with latest EAS changes, as long as they are stable enough (currently at EAS r1.4)
-> Built with Linaro 6.3.1
-> Added support for a new experimental governor pwrutilx, in an attempt to improve battery life
-> Added support for Wake Gestures, Sound Control, KCAL Control and LED Control
-> Merged as much as possible from Google's latest Pixel devices

1- Download latest build from the download link below
2- Reboot into recovery mode
3- Backup existing /system and /boot partitions
4- If stock OOS kernel is not installed, reflash OOS with no wipes
5- Flash latest zip file
6- Reboot
7- Profit!
