Bug fixes are always accepted against Linus's tree.
For features, typically there is a -next branch that each subsystem
maintainer has against which feature development happens. In case of
OMAP, feature development happens against master branch of linux-omap
tree. One way to get to know the -next branches of all subsystem is
to look at Next/Trees file of linux-next tree.
Note that in case of ARM, sub-arch maintainers send the code to arm-soc
maintainers who in turn have a branch which gets merged to linux-next.
Hope that helps.
