== Completed Work Items ==.
- Had to familiarize myself with Android internals and build process,
i.e. set up build environment, actually build a working Android image
from scratch (through quite a bit of hardships, heh). But now I'm
actually able to customize Android from the kernel down to the
userland. :-) Surely I played a bit with all this new stuff.
That might a good question whether I should actually mess with the
userland, but I think that familiarizing w/ Android internals is a
good thing even for a Linux kernel guy, especially as I'm going to
work on Android-related projects.
And this is all was to start preparing changes for ActivityManager
(i.e. add support for memory notifications).
- Started looking into interactive cpufreq governor. I forward-ported
it onto latest kernels, and again played a bit with it. The bad news
is that the governor depends on idle notifiers (notifiers, again :-)
And the notifiers are got a somewhat cool welcome by some ARM folks.

So, might be a good idea to reiterate the notifiers and cpufreq stuff
soon. But need to spend a bit more time on the code, so that I would
feel confident what exactly I'm going to defend.
