I'm not sure about that. It's actually really simple from my perspective:

arch/arm - the ARM 32-bit architecture

arch/arm/mach-* - support for a single SoC or a group of similar SoCs

arch/arm/plat-* - common support for a set of dissimilar SoCs which want
to share code between themselves

How is that confusing?
