web commit by jmcneill: Add a table of supported hardware.

    1: [[!meta title="NetBSD/evbarm on Allwinner Technology SoCs"]]
    2: 
    3: NetBSD supports many boards based on Allwinner SoCs. Starting with NetBSD 8.0, FDT is used to configure devices. As a result, a large number of boards and configurations can be supported with a single kernel.
