probably the kernel from the repository. DEPRECATED is still in
there, I'm currently experimenting which stuff can be compiled as
module and which things cannot. E.g. the vibrator doesn't work if
compiled as module (after loading the module there is no file in
/sys) The upload will finally disable DEPRECATED links in /sys.

About the speed - The packages are compiled with -O2 and the kernel
has the debugging stuff and preemption disabled.

I heard wifi is sometimes not working as expected with the optimized
kernel for unknown reasons. I haven't used wifi for quite some time,
so I don't know all the details.
