Impact of proposed Nvidia purchase of Arm on Linux

Are there any strong reactions to this proposal ?
Is Linux likely to gain or loose anything in particular if $40Bn sale is allowed to go through ?
Might it give Arm development a financial boost that trickles benenfits down to Linux or puts up more barriers ?

Salemof Arm to NVDIA

I don't know about the Linux impact but, as a limey, I have serious reservations about losing control of such a key technological asset. I cannot imagine the US Dept of Commerce permitting a foreign power to gian control of Intel or AMD.
