ThunderZap kernel for Android One devices is now available

Upon looking on kernel sources the purity of them is clearly visible, well thanks to Google for that. The kernel certainly has good room for possible improvements which I have begun to carry out with this first version of my kernel. So proceeding with the release details.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear
 * war, or the current economic crisis caused by you following these
 * directions. YOU are choosing to make these modificiations, and
 * if you point your finger at me for messing up your device, I will
 * laugh at you.
