Trying this kernel with AOSPA ROM right now. I was able to boot the phone without problems.
However one issue that I think is kernel related (have had with stock kernel as well) still persists: Waking up the phone from deep sleep take 1-2 seconds. That means when I put my finger on the fingerprint sensor OR if I press the power button, it takes 2 seconds for the device to wake up. I know of a couple of other people on the forums with the same issue, it does not seems to be too common. Any way you could look into that in the Kernel code to speed up wake ups?

Does it happen with all the governors?
