You are right, of course, since the silicon vendors
customers decide what they want the device to support,
and that is (currently) Linux and VxWorks.  Some BSD
folk are trying to change that, by investing their time in
the patches/ports needed to support additional
embedded processor types/derivatives and make it a
viable platform.  There is even a Raspberry Pi port now
available for FreeBSD as I recall.  Ideally those efforts
will produce a viable ecosystem for BSD in this space.
