Branches and informaton

pie: Current stable branch, if you're building inline on ROMs COMPILE DIS (obviously for 9.0 Pie) - EAS > HMP
staging: My developing branch - I force push a lot and if you don't like force pulling use Pie - this branch gets merged between releases if all gud
hmp: (what was) A hmp kernel which tbh is quite old and depriciated, as EAS best now
sdm660-em: My current energy model
meme-commits: You can guess what that is.
clean: If I rebase, I use this branch. Fully bootable and stable
readme: ...?

From the creation of this README, all releases will be tagged and will have release candidates + full releases under Pie.
I'm planning to add CI/CD support soon but cba to setup Drone.

Features you will never see

- Overclocking (not possible on a HW level on the SDM660)
- Any governors other than schedutil (they're fucking useless man)
- No other I/O schedulers (maybe Anxiety)
- Nothing that comprimises performance - I prefer performance > battery because I'm near an outlet
- Constant upstreaming - when I can be bothered, I'll upstream
