It's not a mailing list as such (with archives etc.), just an alias to
the arm-soc maintainers: arm@kernel.org.

I tried to convince them before, it didn't work. I guess they don't like
to be spammed ;). Or rather, SoC-specific patches, even to defconfig,
should go through the specific SoC maintainers. However, there are
occasional defconfig patches which are more generic or affecting
multiple SoCs. I just ignore them as the arm64 defconfig is usually
handled by the arm-soc folk (when I need a defconfig change, I go for
arch/arm64/Kconfig directly ;)).

Anyway, I still think that we should add a MAINTAINERS entry for
arch/arm64/configs/defconfig and arch/arm64/Kconfig.platforms.
