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 arch/arm/configs/ arch/arm/mach-xyz arch/arm/plat-blah 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-* do echo $i; wc -l $(git ls-files $i) done | less -S and imagine being on the receiving side of that. Linus
