N6: b10-M

-merged kernel patch needed for cataclysm rom
-merged a lot of patches for several subsystems (mdss/slimbus/net/vidc/etc)
-tuned cfq and bfq for flash memory
-f2fs is now supported
-merged some memory management related stuff and other fixes here and there
-merged a patch for better colors on low brightness (less reddish)
-compiled with UBERTC 5.2

Explanation of the different builds:

hC-b10-M: Selinux enforcing, marshmallow wi-fi driver
hC-b10-M-old_wi-fi: Selinux enforcing, lollipop wi-fi driver
hC-b10-M-permissive: Selinux permissive, marshmallow wi-fi driver
hC-b10-M-permissive-old_wi-fi: Selinux permissive, lollipop wi-fi driver

Selinux mode:

I compiled two different selinux modes. Some custom roms out there don't use the patched sepolicy from chainfire, this means these roms need a permissive kernel for root. If you try to boot an enforcing kernel on this roms, you'll end in a boot loop. Don't ask me what you need, since I can't track all roms and I don't know which one of them boot with an enforcing selinux mode. If you'd like to make sure the enforcing kernel boots, you need to flash chainfires modified boot.img from here first and flash my kernel after it: boot.img

Wi-fi driver:

Its known some networks don't like the new marshmallow wi-fi driver. People reporting disconnects, not able to connect at all, or an unstable connection in general. If you suffer from this, switch from the marshmallow driver to the lollipop one.


Have fun!
