I have some Loco's deployed (all of them are AR7241) but no picostations,
so I don't know about the latter.

v0 and v1 mostly come from the need to distinguish between them. You could
think of the digit as the least significant digit of the SoC. We could make
them -7240 and -7241 instead of -v0 and -v1 to be slightly clearer what the
names mean, but that seemed ugly. And, no, as far as I know, the SoC is not
indicated on the exterior of the device at all. The user will have to
figure out the right version to use somehow.
