I think it should go through subarch maintainers, and we'll handle the
conflicts as they arise when merging into the next/defconfig branch.
This does mean that it's important to send the defconfig changes separately
from other changes if possible, but it's fine to have a branch that touches
both platform-specific and generic defconfig files.

Right, that is intentional. We don't want to get Cc'd on 4000 patches per
month that get sent to the mailing list for mach-*. By having a maintainer
for each subdirectory and letting them decide what to forward to us,
we're able to do our job better.
