Default Android performance doubled; coming to CM9 soon [Talk Android]

Wow some great video of Android with the bad code removed, and further optimizations added.
What do you get when you take stock Android 4.0.4 and double its performance? You get Linaro. Linaro is a build of Android that has many performance enhancements and optimizations, making the OS visibly snappier. In some cases, Linaro manages to double performance over stock Android 4.0, which is impressive since stock Android 4.0 is already fairly snappy over older versions of Android.
The good news is that Linaro’s code has been submitted to CM9, now awaiting approval. Once rolled into CM9′s code, all supported devices will get a great speed boost.
