arm-linux profiles already exist. I proved it was easy to do years ago
so I'm confused on what you are trying to do. However, do not add any
arm-linux keywords to the tree! Also, you are extremely confused about
what it means now that gx86 and prefix are "merged" (Hint, nothing
changed and nothing is more or less 'merged'). I am also confused
about what you mean by "expect arch-linux and arch finally to be
merged" -- 'x86-linux' will never become 'x86'
