This is the complete list from xnu-3789.1.32:

#define CPUFAMILY_UNKNOWN 0
#define CPUFAMILY_POWERPC_G3 0xcee41549
#define CPUFAMILY_POWERPC_G4 0x77c184ae
#define CPUFAMILY_POWERPC_G5 0xed76d8aa
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_6_13 0xaa33392b
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_PENRYN 0x78ea4fbc
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_NEHALEM 0x6b5a4cd2
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_WESTMERE 0x573b5eec
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_SANDYBRIDGE 0x5490b78c
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_IVYBRIDGE 0x1f65e835
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_HASWELL 0x10b282dc
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_BROADWELL 0x582ed09c
#define CPUFAMILY_INTEL_SKYLAKE 0x37fc219f
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_9 0xe73283ae
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_11 0x8ff620d8
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_XSCALE 0x53b005f5
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_12 0xbd1b0ae9
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_13 0x0cc90e64
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_14 0x96077ef1
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_15 0xa8511bca
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_SWIFT 0x1e2d6381
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_CYCLONE 0x37a09642
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_TYPHOON 0x2c91a47e
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_TWISTER 0x92fb37c8
#define CPUFAMILY_ARM_HURRICANE 0x67ceee93

I guess this means we'll be getting shiny new macs with ARM9 CPUs...

ARM AFAICT has been there since they introduced CPUFAMILY into the header at xnu-1228 which was around Nehalem time frame or there abouts.
