Does this address the dreaded midnight slow-down/crash bug on the ARM chromebooks?

^this comment is right. For all the power arm 15 and the mali t604 gpu have, when can we expect to get a full optimization for this new cpu? ubuntu runs amazingly fast on this new cpu but chrome os is really sloppy.
