It's the email address of the ARM SoC maintainers (Arnd, Olof, Kevin).
All the ARM sub-architecture maintainers send their pull requests there,
which all get aggregated and forwarded to Linus. They also take some
patches directly, for cross-sub-architecture stuff like
multi_v7_defconfig, or small amounts of bug-fixes after the main pull
requests are sent.
