Dwang’s Android 1.6 (Donut) v1.17.1 released ( a few days go )

Dwang’s Android 1.6 (Donut) has been update to v1.17.1 a few days ago.  Sorry missed that one :)  Here’s the changelog for the last few version:

* Kernel
– msm: add memory barriers, cache flush, TLB invalidation (Forgot this patch after rebuilding kernel source)

* Kernel (Rebuilt kernel source)
– Wired usb tethering support [credit to Zinx]

* Kernel
– Switch to deadline IO scheduler: less CPU usage, better multi-tasking, helps with minimizing slowdowns over time. [thanks wes garner]

* Compcache
– Revert set physical and logical block to PAGE_SIZE patch: Was causing random reboots

* Framework
– Revert to android framework from v1.12 (stock 1.6 framework). Consensus is that this is faster than newer versions.
