This is based on the cyanogenmod kernel, with the main change being the smartass governor has been added and is default.


The zip file is in koush's anykernel format, so it can be flashed just like a rom.



Changes:
Smartass governor by erasmux is default
extra overclock enabled
patch #22 by farmatito
disabled CONFIG_SERIAL_MSM


NO SUPPORT WILL BE GIVEN. ONLY FLASH IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE EXCEPT YOU. BLAH BLAH BLAH.

What does the smartass governor do?

smartass governor - is based on the concept of the interactive governor.
I have always agreed that in theory the way interactive works - by taking over the idle loop - is very attractive. I have never managed to tweak it so it would behave decently in real life. Smartass is a complete rewrite of the code plus more. I think its a success. Performance is on par with the "old" minmax and I think smartass is a bit more responsive. Battery life is hard to quantify precisely but it does spend much more time at the lower frequencies.
Smartass will also cap the max frequency when sleeping to 352Mhz (or if your min frequency is higher than 352 - why?! - it will cap it to your min frequency). Lets take for example the 528/176 kernel, it will sleep at 352/176. No need for sleep profiles any more!

i googled it lol, seems like its a bit more responsive then interactive, and it ramps down quickly too. could give some battery savings

keeps cpu at/above 768mhz, will not go below until you switch off smartass gov.

liking the "sleep" enhancement, but seems like it should let the processor scale on down to 245 when idle with screen on

I'm running this with CM7 Nightly #16 and it's running really well. I'm getting a little more battery consumption than I do with zinx's kernel, but that could just be because I've only been using the kernel for around 2-3 hours. It may need a little more time to settle? I'm not sure, but it is definitely snappier! If it does scale down the cpu during screen off, you can't tell at all! It doesn't have any lag when unlocking like setting profiles usually does. So I'm really stoked about this kernel! Great work as always Dumfuq! This will be my new kernel for at least a few days to give it more of a chance.

PS: I'm only getting around 29 on linpack at 1.017 GHz, where as with zinx's I was getting 38's. Smartbench scores are at 1320's for productivity and 1869 for gaming. So those both beat out zinx's kernel. Just wanted to put those out there so people have some kind of a comparison point.

posted a v2. The difference is frequencies are changed to match glacier frequencies instead of hero's.

The only noticable difference here is that when the screen is off the frequency scales between 245 and 368 instead of being stuck at 245.

I use this on my GF's Mytouch Slide and she gets 20+ hr's on a charge overclocked @ 825. Was so hoping someone would port the kernal to this phone. thx dumfuq ^^

Trying to decide if I want to flash this over the stock cm7 kernel.

Has anyone noticed any gains from doing this? what about compared with the stock cm7 kernel + setCPU?

flashed this over build 16, cm7. I still use setcpu. no problems, everything is smooth like butter. Definitely smoother than it was before. no wake up problems, no play back problems. thanks for this =]

whats the mhz setting on this by default? not super fond of setcpu. though i do like this idea of a custom throttle and logic. so i figured if the mhz is high enough then i'll give it a shot.
