No, you're editing:

"ARM: kirkwood: ..." is more helpful to someone searching --oneline for
changes to the kirkwood SoC.

So yeah, mvebu encompasses kirkwood now with your patchset.  Which makes
the 'mvebu' term more vague.  Before, folks could restrict commit
history on mach-kirkwood/ or mach-dove/ to see changes for a particular
SoC.  With it all in mach-mvebu (and not in a single file), we need
another way for developers to spot relevant commits.  That's why I
prefer the above.

ex: What changed from v3.15 to v3.16 for kirkwood?

$ git log --oneline v3.15..v3.16 -- arch/arm/mach-mvebu | \
	grep -i 'ARM: kirkwood'

This seems to be new territory for us (mvebu), perhaps one of the
arm-soc maintainers has a preference?  I'll add them to this reply.
