A couple of days ago, Samsung released the kernel source code for their Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android Tablet, and some tech-gurus over at XDA Developers have already overclocked the beat to a stable 1.4GHz. Supposedly, after the overclock the tab was noticeably snappier and gained about 25% in benchmarks. The developer, pershoot, posted instructions for you to give it a go yourself if you want. Here they are in a quote,
[Kernel] [Preview] - - OC-VFP_FP 1.4GHZ - Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Update: 6/24/11)

This is a preview of what I have been working on. There is more to do, so am making this a preview until I have some other things smoothened out and other things honed down.

I will post an extensive changelog and add to RM after the upload to github completes.

If you want to bench, it is advised that you set min/max to the same number.

Please let me know if there are any issues. Please report all issues with a log in hand (/proc/last_kmsg (if there is a reboot) and/or dmesg).
