The drivers you mention are shared between different archs (several arm/
drivers are used by arm64) so instead of maintaining multiple copies,
all these drivers have  been merged into noarch eventually.

This is a patch generation issue for kernel series 4.14+, the easiest
way may be to provide an exclude file to the generator on a per-arch
basis. A filter rule excluding arm/ for anything but arm and arm64
should be enough. I'll have a look at this.

Please note that this does not apply to pre-4.14 trees; those should
provide scripts/ipipe/genpatches.sh as the legacy I-pipe series normally
does, which should filter contents appropriately.
