Since commit aa35ec2213b ("hw/arm/raspi: Use more
specific machine names") the raspi2/raspi3 machines
have been renamed as raspi2b/raspi3b.

As more Raspberry Pi 2/3 models are emulated, in order
to avoid confusion deprecate the raspi2/raspi3 machine

Note that the raspi3ap (posted yesterday) is a closer match
to what we model than the raspi3b. But the B model has 1GB
of RAM, while the A+ has 512MB. As a bigger amount of RAM
is probably more useful to our users, I'm not suggesting
replacing the raspi3 alias.
