Francos idea for a kernel is pretty simple, focus on performance while not sacrificing the battery, and doing this without adding lots of crap code to the kernel or patches * Initramfs with the usual stuff (root, CWM support, recovery etc) * Partitions properly mounted in the ramdisk to take the most out from the device * VM values tweaked up for maximum performance/battery * Ondemand governor properly tweaked - features 10k sampling rate for more fine grained samplings * CPU frequency transition latency decreased to 40k instead of stock 100k * I/O boosted - I feel this is the most important setting in the Android kernels * CFQ I/O scheduler by default - most of the Android kernel devs choose to work with deadline or other schedulers, but after deep testing a proper tweaked CFQ for flash devices proved me as the most reliable choice * CFS task scheduler properly tweaked for the best multi-tasking experience * CFS Autogroup added * TCP Veno congestion scheduler by default as its more suitable for this kind of devices * Kernel stripped of debug shit - the only debugs that stayed were: logcat, printk and kallysms (for Voodoo Louder support) * Patched up to 18.104.22.168 from the mainline kernel channel * CRC32 library that is used by a lot of internal kernel mechanics completely patched up to the latest versions * Compiled with Tree RCU Fast No Hz for further battery savings * The usual Franco's magic * SLQB memory allocator * Lots lots more that I will remember later and add it back here... Changelog: #2 * Conservative set as the default governor - gave it 10k sampling rate like I did on Ondemand and gave it a 80 up_threshold, a bit lower than the stock value. This will make the governor scale up a bit more often, making the system a lot snappier while maintaining a good battery balance * Added SLQB memory allocator - I usually tend to use SLUB, but I decided to give this one a try this time and it proved to be a great choice * Dynamic Hotplug disabled - we want the system to have both cores always enabled. This means two things, means it will help a lot for the race-to-idle (the fast we go into idle the more battery we can save), and it means the amount of overhead that was created during onlining/offlining cpu1 is gone since hotplug is a very costly process to the system * Power Management patches from the mainline kernel * EXT4 driver patched up a little bit * EXT4 write performance regression fixed (regression is when a newer introduced code fucks up, unintentionally, some other code, in this case the regression was fixed) * Lowmemorykiller driver patched up for a better memory management * Sleep of death issue should be fixed * Introduced VMAP_AREA_CACHE - for more information visit this old commit from me #3 * Patched 22.214.171.124 * Add RWSEM algorithm * Add CIFS and TUN as modules to /lib/modules/ * Add MDNIE tweaks from SpeedMod * Remove MALI tracking/debug (increased 1 fps on Nenamark 2 with this disabled) * Some other small tweaks and optimizations #3.1 * Sleep of death fix and smooth scaling - I previously had patched the wrong file. cpufreq.c is not compiled for this device since it has CONFIG_S5PV310_HI_ARMCLK_THAN_1_2GHZ defined in the config. Thanks garyd9 for pointing that out to me. #4 * Nothing is changed besides the kernel version number - the application didn't like the .X subversion naming #5 * MDNIE tweaks removed - they caused bad screen sharpness and weird colors. * Ondemand default again and tuned for a better performance/battery experience * Revert RWSEM algorithm patch - just for safety precautions * Sleep of death should be fixed now (I hope ) * Reverted 126.96.36.199 as well * Increased USB charging power - not it charges as fast as on the wall charger * GPU clocks changed a bit - now minimum clock is 200mhz(up from 166mhz), 2nd clock is 266mhz and third clock is 300mhz * Some minor tweaks and optimizations in hope for the same battery life as #2 =) #6 * Completely rebase of the kernel - kernel source is back to 188.8.131.52 and it will stay like that as I don't want mainline kernel patches to fuck up code like there was no tomorrow. * Kernel rebase also means that I was a lot more careful when choosing the code that I wanted to add which means: more performance, better battery and more stability * Ondemand is the default governor * Deadline is the default IO scheduler (for testing purposes) * GPU clocks are 200min and 267max * USB charging as fast as the wall charger * Kernel is clean like a baby's wiped up ass #7 * GPU max frequency increased from 267mhz to 400mhz * Ondemand patched up a little bit - use system workqueues and removed deprecated code * Fixed fuel_gauge wakelock * Compiled with arch specific compiling flags * Added a reasonably big patch to fix some CONFIG_NO_HZ issues - battery improvement * CFS parameters changed a little bit as well #8 * #7 Ondemand patches reverted * Ondemand tuned for battery - it only ramps up if load is > 98% instead of 60% like it was before * GPU clock decreased to 300mhz from 400mhz * Proportional Rate Reduction for TCP from Google - should improve internet speed * Removed the config option that skips loops per jiffy calculation - now both cores run with the same loops per jiffy value as it's should be * Added jRCU and made it default for testing purposes * Some small tweaks and optimizations #9 * jRCU removed * Tree Preempt RCU by default * Revert TCP patch from Google to ensure stability * Remove GPU overclock - I want stability and no crashes or pixelated screens * Tuned up few parameters on the ramdisk #10 (der letzte Franco Kernel für Gingerbread) * Complete rebase from the newer Samsung's source * Applied all previous patches that can be seen from my repo * Stable, fast, reliable and awesome battery life Original-Thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1491428 Downloads: Kernel -> http://minooch.com/franciscofranco/Galaxy Note/franco.Kernel-10.zip (im CWM Recovery flashen) Updater App (Market) -> https://market.android.com/details?i...co.kernel.note Updater App (Android Pit) -> http://www.androidpit.com/en/android...or-Galaxy-Note Achtung, man braucht vorher ein "sauberes Gerät".
