/* User configurable vnswap toggle */

vnswap is a virtual ramdisk driver from Samsung that can be used with zswap.
The goal is to efficiently replace zram.
Enabling vnswap will try to compress 50% of your RAM, resulting in
6GB+ usable memory on Galaxy Note 3 and
4GB+ usable memory on Galaxy S4 LTE-A.
Enabling this will drastically improve multitasking experience at the cost of slightly reduced power efficiency.
This is recommended for users who heavily multitasks or do not turn off the phone for days.
This is turned on by default on all Touchwiz ROMs.
You can manually enable or disable it via writing 1 or 0 to /data/.arter97/vnswap and reboot.
(You will have to create /data/.arter97 directory and create vnswap textfile yourself.)
You can check if the vnswap is working properly by checking /proc/swaps

/* Disclaimer */

Your warranty is now void.
I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this kernel
before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.

/* Supported device */

Galaxy Note 3 SK (SM-N900S, hlteskt)
Galaxy Note 3 KT (SM-N900K, hltektt)
Galaxy Note 3 LG (SM-N900L, hltelgt)
Galaxy Note 3 International (SM-N9005, hltexx)
Galaxy Note 3 T-Mobile (SM-N900T, hltetmo)
Galaxy Note 3 Canada (SM-N900W8, hltecan) - Please use SM-N900T/hltetmo kernel

Making mirrors, re-uploading to another servers are also prohibited with no exceptions.

/* What you need to know - Galaxy Note 3 AOSP */

This kernel has a very different characteristics compared to other AOSP kernels,
this kernel is not based on CyanogenMod sources, thus it doesn't have all of those unstable CAF commits.
By basing on stock OSRC kernel releases, you can expect ultimate stability.

/* What you need to know - 2 */

'Opensource' does not mean 'no-respect'
Leave credits to original developers

/* FAQ */

Why are other CPU governors disabled?
I personally don't want any of my users to play around CPU governors. It'll start be a mess when I try to add support for other CPU governors.
Can I use stock mpdecision and stock thermal engine?
This one too, I'd like my users to stick with Lazyplug and intelli-thermal. Stock implementation is faulty, cores can lock down with stock mpdecision. As for intelli-thermal, the benchmarking score may reduce but will help for a lower temperature of the device and increase the efficiency of the thermal control.
How can I switch to another or stock kernel?
You may have to reinstall the entire ROM. Wipe /system and install the ROM. The included addon.d script helps the kernel to survive on nightly upgrades, but you need to remove it or wipe /system to switch to another kernel.
