This is good content for the FreeBSD wiki, https://wiki.freebsd.org/arm .. 
there are sub-pages there for e.g. AllWinner SoC and RockChip SoC, but also 
per board brand (e.g. Pine, Beagle) so there's precedent for having the tables 
two-ways.

Prrobably? I only added the H6 page recently, after checking one Pine board.

There's a Rock64 U-Boot (I think that;s the 3328) at least.
