Well, 'rpi' is a very common nickname for the Raspberry Pi, so I don't
think there will be confusion for a newcomer (to Buildroot).

On the other hand, all our other boards are using the full name, not a
shortname/nickname, neither in board/ nor in configs/

So, in hindsight, I agree with Thomas here: we should use raspberrypi,
not rpi.

I'll fix and resubmit.

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
