I'm not sure what, if any, specific are classed as blocking from the
ARM PoV. From the devices we're actively supporting the Wandboard will
have a better experience and the BBB I believe will as well but I'll
know that in the next couple of days.

I don't see it as unreasonable, I'm just updating the current status
on ARM for 3.12 so you and others don't see us as blocking.
