The Raspberry Pi model naming convention is indeed confusing. The
armv6 Raspberry Pis are those with the BCM2835 SoC. These are the
original Raspberry Pi (A, B, A+, B+) and the Raspberry Pi Zero
(including W variants, except 2 W). These are all the ones that would
be desupported after FreeBSD 14 in Warner's proposal.

Raspberry Pi 2 uses armv7 images. You can use aarch64 images on 3, 4 and Zero 2.
