I don't think the criticism was directed at the core ARM code that you
maintain (Ingo and others even praised it). I also don't think that you
stopping maintaining it would help in any way with this situation.

We probably shouldn't take criticism personally. Linus has some points
which the ARM community is aware of already since there is ongoing work
for consolidating the platform code (recent v2p patches, SMP-on-UP, FDT
and probably more will come) only that this won't happen overnight. If
you stop merging any of these, there's definitely no way out (other than
doing the work separately for the next two years and replacing the
arch/arm in a single pull request).
