The NightOwl CM rom series are fantastic so I make a few kernels for myself and to give more options for Note users to play with. I am quite happy with these kernels!

1. Forest-M-kernel for NightOwl CM13!
2. Forest-LP-kernel for NightOwl CM12
3. Forest-KK-kernel for NightOwl CM11 (second post)


Credit should go to @bauner who has done the hard and excellent job with the NighOwl rom and kernel. I only make minor kernel tweaks.

Code:
Disclaimer:
/*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, dead cats,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.  
 * YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh 
  */
What this kernel adds:

Change log:
- Remove kernel debugs to reduce kernel load. Logcat is kept so that you can make log.
- OC CPU to 1600 Mhz in P (powerful) version.
- Play with different toolchains. Currently using Uber toolchain. Will play with Hypertoolchain (to do)
- Play with GPU (to do)
- other minor tweaks

Instruction:
- Flash the kernel zip file in recovery
- Reboot, then use No-frills CPU control to set CPU frequency and desired governor/scheduler.
- Pegasusq/Row combo seems to be very good.
- Enjoy!

Forest-LP-kernels:

This post is for Forest-KK(CM11)-Kernels!

What does this kernel add?


Changelogs V9:
- Rebase to TW source by @bauner
- disable kernel debugs
- compile using Uber toolchain
- OC CPU to 1600Mhz in V9P version
- Other minor tweaks.

I feel happy with the new kernel versions. They are both silky smooth!

Instructions:
- flash in recovery
- Remember to use No-Frills to set correct cpu frequency, and governor/scheduler!

-----------------------------------------------------------------


Change log V8_T
- Reduce aggressiveness of PegasusQ governor for stability.

Change log V7_T
1. Reverse CPU OC. Now us standard CPU 1400hz
2. Implement OC of OLED panel to 59hz and included the gralloc fix modules for those rom where the code has not been merged (credits to @GeeckoDev)

Changelog of Forest-KK-Kernel_V6_T:
1. Added trim support: to ensure smooth running and fast backup-restore. (credits to @Lanchon) More on trim look at this post
2. Merged FPBug fix: to fix the music stop bug by @Lanchon and @zeitferne. For details look at this thread
3. Rework GPU to three steps: 134-200-267 Kernel now run smoother and cooler than V5 while still handle heavy games easily!
4. Re-enable logcat function (which was disable in earlier version)
5. included OC CPU and Philz recovery as in earlier version

The kernel is extremely smooth and running cool! CM11 should be indeed stable now!


Change log for earlier versions:
1. Add Philz Touch 6 recovery version 6.30.8 (CWM v6.0.4.8)
2. Add option for OC CPU to 1.6 GHz (from V3)
3. Add OC GPU with 4 steps: 134-200-267-333 (from V5)
2. Disable all kernel debug and logging
3. Some other tweaks of config file

For me:
- It runs smoother, cooler and more battery friendly than stock version.
- With V3b and V5, OC to 1.6GHz the phone is fast and silky smooth! Heavy game also play smoothly now
- And you have the beautiful Philz Touch recovery which can also be used to flash any other KK roms.

Important note:
- There are 3 versions for CM11, Omni and Slim you need to use correct version for your rom.
- For those who want even better battery life, follow the simple but effective tips from @NoteboyTech here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...-note-t2820862


Instruction:
- Flash the kernel zip file in recovery
- Give some time for kernel to settle and enjoy! U may want to to one manual trim after flashing for more smoothness!

My favorite settings:
- Governor/Scheduler: Pegasusq/Row
- CPU min 200 Mhz max 1600 Mhz.

Thanks! Very timely release as I'm currently having problems with overheating and severe lag and was about to replace the ROM.

Confirmed to be working on C-ROM v5.19 CM11 KK custom ROM. Too early to report any bugs (if any) but so far it appears to be a lot smoother than the previous kernel I used. Will revert for any issues found (again if any) but assume no news again from me means good news!

Update:
Battery drain is mostly behaving like Forest TW/JB kernel which is promising. After 9 hours installed mostly 6 hours in deep-sleep, OC'd at 1.2GHz, & GSM in 2G/3G only lost 4% which for this device is pretty impressive considering that kernel should still be in settling stage.

Oh, and yes N7000 is not even warm while screen is continuously on. Otherwise, previous kernels would heat up device and cause lag then freeze. Pretty cool for an initial release! Thanks a lot @forest1971!

Seems to work fine on Carbon ROM too. Haven't tested for long, will report later if something goes wrong.
This probably works on any other relatively CM-based ROM, too. Like MoKee and PAC and Nameless. Probably.
