Keeping Route53 updated

Spent the better part of the night screwing around with installing OpenBSD on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (note the subtle extra character right at the end, there). It's irritating that a device can go from Version "3 B" to "3 B+" and so much changed. Spent a good bit of time goofing around with dtb files and trying to find the magic combination that would allow me to boot. Got close a few times, but the ethernet port refused to show up.
