Hi all,
I decided to share my personal custom kernel with all of you. The main reason i started developing this kernel is to balance performance / battery and also add features.

I believe i have included most of the usually requested features. If your feature is not included you can ask for it and i will try to include it as long as you don't ask for ETA's. I am a student and i do this on my spare time.

This kernel is based on LineageOS 15.1 sources for bullhead and has been upstreamed to version 3.10.108.
I also have a 3.10.73 version which obviously is not upstreamed but in my opinion has better battery life. Features remain the same between those two versions.

So let's jump the interesting part!
