    I got a bit frustrated with ten different ARM pulls per day at one point.

    There's something wrong with ARM development. The amount of pure noise in
    the patches is incredibly annoying. Right now, ARM is already (despite me
    not reacting to some of the flood) 55% of all arch/ changes since 2.6.34,
    and it's all pointless churn in


    and at a certain point in the merge window I simply could not find it in
    me to care about it any more.

    Do you guys at all talk about this problem? Have any of the ARM people
    bothered to look at the arch/arm diffs and see how mind-deadening they
    are? I try to look through these kinds of things when I pull, but after a
    million lines of pure noise, it gets old pretty quickly.

    Somehow, I can't believe that you need thousands of lines for each random
    arch/arm/mach-xyz (yeah, some very few of them are smaller).

    For a taste of the mind-deadening experience, just do

    for i in arch/arm/mach-*
    echo $i; wc -l $(git ls-files $i)
    done | less -S

    and imagine being on the receiving side of that.
