Mod Type: Kernel
This is my first kernel on the Galaxy Nexus. I came from working on two previous kernels on the Droid Incredible.
The kernel will only work on JB and is carrier independent as all Galaxy Nexus kernels are from 4.0.3 onwards. It uses the AnyKernel updater method so it's compatible with ANY ROM.
/* NON-STANDARD DISCLAIMER: I understand that if I disable fsync I am liable for any possible data corruption that could result. While dynamic fsync has been added, there is still the risk of data corruption. */
IMPORTANT: On 3.3.0/1.12.0 and higher, the WiFi drivers from the Linux 3.4 kernel branch breaks WEP functionality. Also, to ROM devs that want to bake in this kernel into their ROM, they will need to pull the hostapd file included into their /system/bin or WiFi tethering will not work.
*NOTE* starting with 4.0.1 there is now a Jellybean 4.1 version as well as a Jellybean 4.2 build with the old WiFi driver

a few deadline tweaks
enable dynamic fsync control to replace fsync control (default off for normal operation)
cpufreq: interactive: Fix uninitialized spinlock
net: wireless: bcmdhd: Update to version 1.88.7
cpufreq: ktoonservative screen off race condition fix hand patched by tiny
compiled using 2013.03 Linaro toolchain
numerous interactive/interactiveX governor patches including io_is_busy

All changes from 3.3.0 above except for the new WiFi driver
3.2.0 -- Kernel pulled due to performance issues
slub: fix a possible memory leak
Add FIFO I/O scheduler
enable KSM, FIFO I/O scheduler, cleancache, and zcache
add 525 and 1060 CPU frequencies
patches to prepare for intellidemand - proven instable for me so far
compiled using 2013.02 Linaro toolchain
powerHAL updates to support ondemand governor
net: bluetooth: Remove the AID_NET_BT* gid numbers
sync: fix timeout = 0 wait behavior

Added optimized CRC32 algorithm.
Added optimized ARM RWSEM algorithm.
Add ROW I/O Scheduler by Qualcomm - removed and re-added with support for CFQ as well
gpu: pvr: bypass compat check if version is same but build # is different (this is what allows compatibility with 4.2.1)
merged jb-mr1.1 kernel changes from AOSP (Android 4.2.2 kernel)
tweaked nightmare governor for Tinykernel (use 350 MHz min as 230 MHz is glitchy with nightmare)
nightmare governor ported to Galaxy Nexus and other updates (r_data)
Add Nightmare governor (Thanks to Alucard24)
