Default Custom kernel?

Is anyone running a custom kernel with an AOSP-based ROM yet (e.g. CM/AOKP/PA)?

I'm interested in the battery savings (although TBH so far AOKP with the stock kernel is amazing battery life) but also to see if it fixes the minor stuttering seen in some cases.

I was hoping faux would have a AOSP kernel, but so far he has only done a TW kernel. And it looks like no leankernel support (which I ran on my gnex) as of yet.

Curious what kernels are out there and if they're better for interactivity/reduction of stutter and if the battery life is good.

Found this one:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2294083

Trying the dev's recommended settings here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=41756874&postcount=3

Except I'm not OC'ing anything, leaving the GPU/CPU freqs at their current maxes, but did set the lower end and the screen off frequencies, etc.

I enabled animations again, and they seemed snappy, but I am leaving them off anyway as I've become used to them not being there

I would like to flash this kernel on my s4 im rooted through the motochopper\pre-release kernal method and now running the verizon stock kernel. Do you have a quick step by step tutorial on how i can flash this kernel since its been a while? I assumed it was as easy as loading the kernel on odin and just flashing my rooted s4.

never mind got it flashed, setting the gpu frequency to 600 doesn't yield a good improvement
