Stock XXLPY/LPF only - confirmed and working. You Should not boot on AOSP/CM9 roms.

This is what my kernel is made off:
* Initramfs with the usual stuff (root, CWM support, recovery etc) based on CF-Root LPY
* Partitions properly mounted in the ramdisk to take the most out from the device
* VM values tweaked up for maximum performance/battery
* Conservative tweaked and made the default governor
* I/O boosted - I/O dirty writeback system backported from 3.2
* CFS scheduler tweaked for maximum interactivity
* CFS Autogroup enabled
* Deadline I/O scheduler by default
* TCP Westwood+ congestion scheduler by default as its more suitable for this kind of devices
* Kernel stripped of debug **** - the only debugs that stayed were: logcat, printk and kallysms (for Voodoo Louder support)
* CRC32 library that is used by a lot of internal kernel mechanics completely patched up to the latest version
* The usual Franco's magic
* SLUB memory allocator
* Wi-Fi power management - echo 1 > /sys/module/dhd/parameters/wifi_pm (this is only available with wifi is turned on. This boosts wifi signal and its specially useful for screen_off streaming, but it might waste a little extra battery)
* Lots more to be seen on my repository

* All governors removed but one - pegasusq from Samsung
* Merged gokhanmoral work on this cpufreq driver - all credits to him. Also cleaned up a defined but unused function
* fsync() calls reintroduced to match stock behavior. The device actually runs faster/smoother with this enabled - also safer for data integrity (this has nothing to do with superbrick bug)
* Disable mali-400 tracking debug
* Merged two stability hotplug patches from mainline Linux kernel
* Added two modules to userpsace where one can see how many times the CPU was hotplugged in and hotplugged out: cat /sys/module/stand_hotplug/parameters/ cpu_up_nr and cat /sys/module/stand_hotplug/parameters/ cpu_down_nr
* Removed overclocking at all - it was causing heat and stability issues. If you want OC use Tegrak app
* Some config cleaning

* Added overclock to 1,6Ghz
* Some fixups on cpufreq.c files on exynos arch directory
* initramfs updated to CF-Root v5.6 - all props to Chainfire

* Some Wi-Fi driver fixes (might help fixing those obtaining IP derps)
* Tons of warnings fixed for a more stable kernel - don't we all want a clean compilation?
* Compiled with special compiler flags for some extra bits of performance
* Fixed a section mismatch - this warnings are one of the worse kind and can possibly lead to big problems. This one is fixed

* Removed MMC_CAP_ERASE - workaround to fix the superbrick bug - thanks Entropy512 for all the research and shared knowledge with us for this god damn bug
* Re-activated dynamic hotplug - the system seems to run smoother with this option and according to Entropy it gives us lower idle drain specially while the system is holding a wakelock

* Initramfs fixed - recovery works, CWM works etc

* Based on Samsung update3 for ICS kernel 3.0.15 - it contains the hardbrick bug so flash at your own rish or just extract the zImage and to /data/local, fire up adb shell and type this: dd if=/data/local/zImage of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5 bs=4096 and then reboot
* Contains all the features wrote above plus some small ****s available on my git
* App will be updated in the next 12 hours with a full ICS layout plus tons of useful features. The current version won't load this new kernel version for ICS so don't bother checking it. I'll announce when the new app update is up

1. My device rebooted or crashed, how can I help?
A: Get me /proc/last_kmsg or logcat.
2. Battery sucks, my device is not entering deep sleep. FIX PLOX!
A: Fix it yourself, it's an app waking your device up not the kernel's problem. Also make sure you let your device settle for at least 2 charging cycles. Typically apps like Facebook and Google Maps can cause problems since they wake it up pretty much all the time
3. Signal is dropping since I flashed the kernel, amg u sucks!
A: The kernel has nothing to do with gsm/cmda signal. Make sure you have the latest radios
4. Do I need to wipe anything when flashing this kernel?
A: No.
5. Does this kernel has X or Y mod?
A: Learn to read, everything you need to know is in the features list, changelog or public repo.
6. Don't use 3rd party init.d scripts!!!

franco.Kernel updater app for Galaxy Note features:
* Completely re-written app
* Ice Cream Sandwich theme
* New CPU frequencies panel
* Governor Control
* Settings panel with Power Modes with my own specialized presets
* XDA thread link in the menu button
* Other settings and options

Flashed it a couple of minutes ago. Looking pretty good so far.

I feel that responsivness and scrolling are better than with CF (my usual kernel of choice). There's almost no launcher lag, which is saying something.

Now to see how it affects the old battery...

P.S. It is also compatible with CWM Manager.

Thanks for your hard work, Franco.

I've just done backup from CWM Manager, and it was successful.

However, when the phone tried to reboot, it got into bootloop (with both led lights on all the time). Wiping cache/dalvik didn't help.

Restoring my previous Rom now.
