                     16: NetBSD/evbarm is the port of NetBSD to various evaluation and prototyping
                     17: boards based on CPUs implementing the ARM architecture. NetBSD/evbarm also
                     18: supports some specific embedded system products based on prototype board
                     19: designs.
                     20: 
1.42      gdt        21: ### CPU types
                     22: 
1.57      gdt        23: The evbarm port can be built with a variety of CPU options, corresponding to the
                     24: [large array of ARM CPU architectures](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARM_architecture#Cores).
                     25: There are
1.56      gdt        26: four main variables: the word size, the instruction set, the
                     27: endianness, and whether there is hardware floating point.  By default
1.68      gdt        28: the CPU type is "earm", and this implies aarch32 (32-bit), earmv5 cpu
1.56      gdt        29: architecture, little endian (el when explicitly stated), and soft
1.58      gdt        30: (Emulated) floating point.  Another example, suitable for Raspberry PI
1.56      gdt        31: 2, is earmv7hf, which is aarch32, the v7 instruction set, little
                     32: endian, and hardware floating point.
1.42      gdt        33: 
                     34: Typically, various boards are best compiled with a CPU type that
                     35: matches the board's CPU and floating point support, but generally a
                     36: lower CPU instruction set version is workable on a newer board.  See
                     37: build.sh and look for aliases for the evbarm port.
                     38: 
1.56      gdt        39: Through NetBSD 8, the evbarm port has supported exclusively the
                     40: aarch32 (32-bit CPU) sub-family of the ARM architecture.  Some
                     41: processors, such as many supporting the armv8 CPU architecture, also
                     42: support a 64-bit instruction set, referred to as aarch64.  This is
                     43: sometimes referred to as a distinct port, [[NetBSD/aarch64|aarch64]],
                     44: with code in src/sys/arch/aarch64, but it is built as the evbarm port
                     45: with aarch64 cpu type, and available as the alias evbarm64.
1.50      gdt        46: 
1.58      gdt        47: Note that MACHINE_ARCH=aarch64 currently refers to the A64 instruction
                     48: set and the aarch64 architecture, built for the armv8 architecture.
                     49: (Note also that armv8 is the first architecture to support aarch64, so
                     50: this will not be an issue until at least armv9.)
                     51:
