commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=7a0c134e7cebac125ebacaf52d5105ffe45cfe25
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/next

The instructions for the Raspberry Pi 2 (aka model B2) are the same as
the ones for the Raspberry Pi, so:
  - state so in the existing readme
  - create a symlink raspberrypi2 -> raspberrypi

Also fix typo in spelling of "Raspberry Pi" (two words, not one).
