BACK FROM THE DEAD

This kernel is intended to be stable yet fast. has many goods (OC UV ect.) but yet its main goal is to be stable. THIS KERNEL IS INTENDED FOR USE ON CYANOGENMOD (but if u would like to try on other aosp roms feel free) ;)

i decided to bump my old thread to give testers a place to discuss the kernel and point out possible issues. before its moved into CyanogenMod.

u can get the kernel via Kernel Manager in the android market.

direct link: http://kernels.teamw.in/files.php?fid=565&kid=237

all source can be found on my link in my signature.

thanx for the support and please leave feedback :)

as of v7:

instead of BFS di like to try playing around with this

>> Stdev 3 usec

>> (BFS)
>> Averages:
>> ------------------------------
>> Max 474 usec
>> Avg 11 usec
>> Stdev 16 usec

In fact, I liked this setting so much that I went to
kernel/sched_features.h of kernel 2.6.30.5 (the kernel I use normally right
now) and set SCHED_FEAT(NEW_FAIR_SLEEPERS, 0) (default is 1) with
absolutely no other tweaks (like sched_latency_ns,
sched_wakeup_granularity_ns, etc.). It pretty much behaves like BFS now
from an interactivity point of view. But I've used it only for about an
hour or so, so I don't know if any ill effects will appear later on.

just need to get debugfs enabled.
and no no forking in the movie :) pandorum on netflix

may be promising. i did some work with Con the creator of BFS on the HeroC had him look over my dirty backport to .27 and then used his suggestions on my .29 heroC port. i only had like one or two issues that came about from BFS in the end. mostly app related at that. i really never had time to look further into the issues because of other projects and the awesome sauce EVO's arrival. but yeah im gonna go with a fork and work out the bugs. i like the idea behind BFS and feel its best suited for devices like ours. that said... .34 has a major CFS overhaul, which many have said fixes a lot of issues CFS had in previous kernel versions. so getting to .34 and playing around i guess is the goal i have ATM.

ps. look at this lol
