Speaking as maintainer of a couple other ARM subarchs (Orion, Kirkwood,
MV78xx0, ...) I would gladly accept full responsibility (and blame) for
them as well. I think Russell could avoid astraining to himself full
review for every patch concerning those that I send his way, and merely
look at the diffstat to be sure I'm not crapping onto the core ARM code.
Linus certainly doesn't do much more than that on his end already.

It's been a couple merge windows now that RMK started accepting git pull
requests from a couple people in addition to his patch system, and that
has worked pretty well overall.
