ARM doesn't make chips. They make CPU designs, and licence those out to a multitude of companies who put those CPUs into actual chip designs and manufacture them.

That's the general issue Linus is talking about. There's no such thing as a standard ARM based processor let alone motherboard, they're all custom implementations.
