Comment Re:ARM and x86 Products are Fundamentally Differen (Score 1) 94

As such, where minimizing differences by processor was clean and relatively straightforward for x86, expecting it to continue to work well for ARM is nonsensical. I really think Linus is missing the forest on this one.

Not true. Pretty much all of us maintainers agree that the duplication of code and infrastructure in arch/arm is ridiculous. It has to be fixed, and we're actively working on it. Linus was perfectly correct in his statements.
