I've been looking forward to flashing this kernel. But has anybody been using it with LOS 18.1?

I've just tried the latest release, r23, with the latest LOS 18.1 official nightly (2022-05-24). The text size is just tiny, which surely can't be intentional. Same on r21. The last release where everything is not wildly scaled down seems to have been r20.

Separately, whether on r20, r21, or r23, scrolling is beyond jerky. This is as long as 60 Hz is set in Settings → Display → Advanced → Minimum refresh rate, which is the default. The screen stays at this rate all the time, it never goes up. Changing the setting to 120 Hz works around this issue: scrolling is smooth but at the cost of making the screen run at 120 Hz all the time. (As reported by the Show refresh rate overlay enabled in Settings → Developer options.)

Before installing I've read through the whole thread and nobody mentioned any such problems. I've now also checked the Telegram group and there's a mention of a similar issue back in July, although it refers to CrDroid, but no follow-up.

This is with the custom branch, which I tried first as I believe it's the one intended for non-OOS use. For comparison, I then also tried r23 from the oxygenos-11 branch. The screen movement is not as jerky even when set to 60 Hz, there are also more choices for Minimum refresh rate: 72 Hz and 90 Hz (choosing either changes the rate to 120 Hz, which is probably to be expected since I'm not on not stock).

However this version is clearly not intended for use with LOS since the camera punchout is in the wrong place, making it look like Mickey Mouse with an ear missing.

Anyway, the kernel is obviously very well-thought out, and the changes documented in detail. It's already on its 23rd release, the author has completed a lot of difficult work and resolved a lot of much more difficult issues. So unless I'm missing something, the only conclusion must be that nobody has been using this kernel with LOS 18.1, right? And it's just not supposed to be compatible.

You can change the smallest width size to 411 in either display settings or developer options. It should fix the camera cut-out issues as well but make sure your flashing the custom version of the kernel. It should work smoothly on Lineage 18.1 as it works well in Crdroid v7

A minor (or major, depending whether you actively use hotspot) update is up.

I've noticed that my Tesla needlessly takes a lot of time to detect and connect to my hotspot. The underlying issue was that the userspace's AP daemon, hostapd, was occasionally trying to use DFS channels for hotspot.

Using DFS requires a 60 seconds delay (mandated by law) so that it can avoid using critical radar frequencies.

While such delays can be tolerable for stationary router, it is not on mobile, hence it is forcefully disabled on the kernel-side.

Please and thank you beforehand. I'm on Cr droid A12 . Arters r24 custom works on this correct ?
No only, v8.7 and older is based on OOS11 sources. 07/14/22 is the last build to support this base. The next stable build 07/24/22 is OOS12 based and therefore will not work with the kernel.
Keep in mind if you use v8.7 you will lose OOSCAM but other than that the build is quite stable and I used it for a long time battery was really good.
Anything beyond this (at least for crdroid) will not work with the kernel.
You can also use any build of v7.x
Here's a link for the last build of OOS11 based v8.7

actually now it's more or less okay. may be it was just because of heavy use while charging, which caused the phone to overheat and restart.
actually I'm very happy with the performance with this Kernel. but I noticed something while booting that the one plus logo freezes for a moment, disappear then come back again. I know it's insignificant issue but just wondering why?

I want to bring this new cpu scheduler called BORE to your attention. It works wonderfully to make UI apps to work smooth as butter without even affecting throughput but I've only tried it on laptop (Arch Linux). It's super super smooth. On the github repo there's a patch for the latest 6.1/6.2 kernel, so I'm not sure if it can be easily backported to 5.4. To my uneducated eyes, the modifications are minimal and it's built upon stock CFS scheduler, so it's not a complete scheduler rewrite like Cacule, PDS and MuQSS.

I don't wanna to start flamewar or something but... Sorry, BORE is the worst custom scheduler I ever tried at my ArchLinux (feelings and backed by benchmarks) with Ryzen 7 5825U. Best results are with PDS.

High chance that you tried it while it was buggy (it has been fixed since v1.6.34.0). The dev is very active on CachyOS discord server, most of us in the discord have been pleased by the result (in terms of smoothness and benchmark over other scheduler including PDS). I'm on Ryzen 9 6980HX.

    /* Details */

    - Fully rebased kernel without unnecessary OnePlus code -



    This kernel is not based on the stock OxygenOS kernel source provided by OnePlus. Instead, it’s based on the latest and greatest Qualcomm has to offer. Only the necessary parts from the OnePlus kernel have been cherry-picked, such as OnePlus 9 specific device drivers.

    This effectively kills all kernel modifications/optimizations from OnePlus, including the infamous app throttler.
    Due to the completely different base, this kernel will behave drastically different from other kernels, in both good and bad ways.


    - Power optimizations -


    This kernel makes some conscious decisions for reducing power consumption.

    First, the stock OnePlus configuration forces display-related processes to use the big cores exclusively.
    This configuration brings a huge power regression since it makes every frame dispatch to wake up and use the power-hungry cores.

    This kernel resets this profile to use the configuration Google recommends, which is to use the LITTLE cores exclusively instead. (Reverted in r2 as it seems like that little cores aren't enough to drive 120 Hz fluidly.)
    This kernel allows these processes to use little and middle cores (0-6), depending on the load.

    Second, this kernel disables wakelocks upon Wi-Fi’s RX unicast packet transmissions. qcom_rx_wakelock is one of the major culprits to increased idle power consumption. Although its total wakelock time is quite low, it's catched very frequently and prevents the system from entering suspend repeatedly.

    As dropping unicast or local ARP packets doesn’t pose practical issues on Android, this kernel disables qcom_rx_wakelock.

    Third, this kernel reduces the duration of the Bluetooth ISR wakelock from 2 seconds to 100ms. This was done from an observation that the average userspace response time from ISR is less than 10ms.
    My kernels have been doing this for years and no Bluetooth-related issues were reported.

    Fourth, the vibrator driver used in this kernel no longer controls the cpuidle driver. The stock kernel disables the cpuidle whenever the vibrator is used. This kernel disables it as the vibrator is not that sensitive to deadline misses.

    There are other small improvements throughout the kernel tree as well.


    - Memory management optimizations -


    This kernel marks the first Linux v5.4 based Android kernel to have MGLRU backported.

    MGLRU is a big deal in everything Linux related, especially for Android.
    Esper have a great article on what is MGLRU in a nutshell: https://blog.esper.io/android-dessert-bites-22-linux-memory-management-38419756/

    TL;DR:
    According to Google’s fleetwide profiling, multi-generational LRU yields an “overall 40% decrease in kswapd [the kernel daemon that manages virtual memory] CPU usage,” an “85% decrease in the number of low-memory kills at the 75th percentile,” and an “18% decrease in app launch times at the 50th percentile.”

    This kernel also disables LMKD and uses an in-kernel solution called SimpleLMK, made by kerneltoast. You can track how often SimpleLMK kicks in by monitoring:
    Code:
    /sys/module/lowmemorykiller/parameters/lmk_count

    This kernel also changes a lot related to swap and zram.

    The swap-related code has been backported from Linux v5.9 (link1, link2) to efficiently support fast swap device and allow swappiness over 100. This kernel currently sets swappiness to 160 on < 6GB of RAM, 120 on 8GB and 90 on 12GB.

    zram has been also backported from mainline Linux and further tweaked to use block device writeback. This is equivalent to the recent “RAM Plus” feature that companies have been marketing that uses the internal storage to extend RAM.

    This kernel uses zram writeback to offload idle pages (i.e., really, really unused RAM) to the internal storage. As it's extremely slow to bring pages back from UFS, writeback code works quite conservatively. It'll start to writeback pages that haven't been used for a day or two. It makes use of the hidden 2GB “last_parti” partition from the UFS storage.

    Along with zram writeback,
    this kernel also enables deduplication with xxHash. Each page stored in zram is checked for deduplication to further save memory. With these 2 features combined, RAM reaching 1GB is additionally saved, but your mileage may vary.

    zram writeback is temporarily disabled to avoid lags on long uptime with r20.

    The post boot script used in the stock ROM is also overridden and it sets the readahead to 128KB. As I/O workload under Android is mostly random, high readahead doesn’t help and only increases memory thrashing.

    This kernel also incorporates a lot of patches to reduce/optimize memory allocations used throughout the entire kernel.

    mmap/mremap code was also backported from Linux v5.10 to optimize ART (see here for more info).


    - Latest subsystems -


    This kernel backports the SELinux subsystem from mainline Linux. This includes caching improvements that drastically reduces time spent on lookups. 10K lines of code has been changed.

    This kernel also backports f2fs (Flash-Friendly File System) from mainline Linux. This includes bug fixes and performance improvements such as shorter discard latency, more optimized GC logic for Android, and checkpoint merging.

    BFQ I/O scheduler has also been backported from mainline Linux for better I/O performance.


    - LRNG -


    This kernel ditches the traditional RNG driver from the Linux kernel in favor of LRNG. See here and here for more info.

    A rudimentary throughput benchmark shows an improvement of 10.5% (keep in mind that this is only one aspect of an RNG metric).


    - Battery charging management -


    - Battery charging code has been backported from OxygenOS 12. There are numerous fixes there.

    - A case where the charger negotiation doesn't go smoothly, the stock kernel will have the charging current limited for prolonged time instead of retrying. This kernel retries AICL right after re-negotiation, so the charging speed will be fixed for this particular case.

    - Users can now unlock 27W (9V 3A) charging through USB-PD. From my testing, the battery charges 2% per minute.
    Most decent USB-PD chargers should be capable of 27W (including all PD chargers that I personally own), but do note that this is dangerous if you connect to a non-27W capable charger (i.e., 3A unsupported on the 9V voltage profile) when this is enabled.
    Write 0 to /sys/modules/oplus_chg/parameters/limit_pd enable this new behavior.

    - OnePlus lowers the temperature limit when the screen is on for cooler user experience. Users can now also change this behavior and allow the device to get a little hotter by forcing the kernel to behave the same during screen-on and screen-off.
    This is not dangerous but it'll obviously mean the device will be hotter when you use it and charge it simultaneously.
    Write 1 to /sys/modules/oplus_chg/parameters/ignore_screen_state to do this.

    - This build now disables surface temperature monitoring in the charging code for non-SuperWarp chargings. This mechanism is a separate one from what's described above, and I've personally ran into multiple charging annoyances due to this, resulting in a super slow 3W charging when I need to charge urgently.
    OnePlus have set the threshold too low, resulting in real charging issues in practice. This behavior is somewhat lifted with OxygenOS 12, and my kernel takes it further and removes it entirely for non-SuperWarp charges as other perfectly fine safety mechanisms exist.

    See the commit for more details:


    /* Notice */

    OxygenOS 12 is unsupported.
    Non-OxygenOS custom ROMs are supported, but your mileage may vary wildly. Most notably, gesture orientations on some ROMs may be inverted.
    Custom ROMs that uses OxygenOS 12 kernel, including LineageOS 19.1, are not supported.

    This kernel touches vendor_boot and dtbo partitions, meaning you'd need to restore said partitions whenever you're switching to another kernel or stock.
    Please make a back-up of these partitions. The installer doesn’t do this automatically for you. Installing the stock ROM with a full OTA restores said partitions as well.

    /* Disclaimer */

    Your warranty is now void.
    I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

    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.

    A major new testing release is up.

    Changes made in this round is big enough that I've decided to name it r20.

    While the build has been stable for me, I'm marking this an alpha as a lot changed.

    r20a1 marks the first Linux v5.4 based kernel to have MGLRU backported.

    MGLRU is a big deal in everything Linux related, especially for Android.
    Esper have a great article on what is MGLRU in a nutshell: https://blog.esper.io/android-dessert-bites-22-linux-memory-management-38419756/

    TL;DR:
    According to Google’s fleetwide profiling, multi-generational LRU yields an “overall 40% decrease in kswapd [the kernel daemon that manages virtual memory] CPU usage,” an “85% decrease in the number of low-memory kills at the 75th percentile,” and an “18% decrease in app launch times at the 50th percentile.”

    Personally, I've noticed a sharp decrease in swap usage and improvements in general performance.

    Besides MGLRU, there are other numerous patches that are worth noting.

    I've brought back updated arm64 routines that were once tried in a beta release but removed later due to random kernel panics (mostly notable from Netflix). The mainline Linux kernel have gotten new updates since then, so r20a1 includes that.
    Also, some memory patches made by Sultan are also picked, and I've confirmed that those also help improving responsiveness.

    With all these memory stuffs going on, I've also changed swap/zram's parameters. You'll notice a difference in how many apps you can keep open, etc.

    The excessive RMNET_DFC wakelock that annoyed some users are now also gone by incorporating a fix from Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

    All in all, this is indeed a pretty big release.
    I'm expecting mixed feedback, so please let me know how the new kernel behaves.
