[Edgex-tsc-core] RPi -> 64-bit OS

If 32 bit is a problem, gentoo has a 64 bit distribution. You also can build a 64 bit from yocto.

Hi all,
one thing to keep in mind is that official flavor od Debain that runs
on RPi, called Raspbian, is 32 bit. This might be problematic for some
apps, and in particular Docker (although this should be enabled via
Hypriot project:
https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/docker-comes-to-raspberry-pi/).

This is something to keep in mind.

Tony,
does Ubuntu Core support RPi in 64-bit mode
(https://developer.ubuntu.com/core/get-started)?

FYI, according to Jim, there is a 64-bit version of Raspbian, however one of my co-workers has mentioned that the Pi foundation doesn't recommend running 64-bit on the Pis, due to memory starvation and the fact that you'll quickly run into OOM problems. From what I've been told, running 64-bit on anything with less than 4GB of RAM isn't advised.
