Will we (GTA0x-owners) also benefit from this?:

Linux 3.7 arrives, ARM developers rejoice:
Quote: "...
Now with 3.7, ARM architectures can use one single vanilla Linux kernel 
<http://lwn.net/Articles/496400/> while keeping their special device 
sauce in device trees.
The end result is that ARM developers will be able to boot and run Linux 
on their devices and then worry about getting all the extras to work. 
This will save them, and the Linux kernel developers, a great deal of 
time and trouble.
Just as good for those ARM architects and programmers who are working on 
high-end, 64-bit ARM systems, Linux now supports 64-bit ARM processors. 
64-bit ARM CPUs won't ship until in commercial quantities until 2013
