Bug Description

The new Raspberry Pi 3B+ is missing from the flash-kernel database. Support has been added to the bionic raspi2 kernel, so it would be great if the other packages could support it too.

Here's the appropriate entry for all.db:

# Raspberry Pi 3 B+
Machine: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus Rev 1.3
DTB-Id: bcm2710-rpi-3-b-plus.dtb
U-Boot-Script-Name: bootscr.rpi3
Required-Packages: u-boot-tools
Boot-DTB-Path: /boot/firmware/bcm2710-rpi-3-b-plus.dtb
Boot-Kernel-Path: /boot/firmware/vmlinuz
Boot-Initrd-Path: /boot/firmware/initrd.img
Boot-Script-Path: /boot/firmware/boot.scr

"Machine: BCM2710" is not listed to not overlap with the 3 B entry; the B+ is also apparently considered a BCM2710, but /proc/device-tree/model shows "Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus Rev 1.3" on modern kernels/DTBs.

Changed in flash-kernel (Ubuntu):
milestone: none → ubuntu-18.04.1

On multiple 4.17 kernels I'm seeing Machine show up as follows when I do this:

cat /proc/device-tree/model

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+

Perhaps that should be in the Machine line in the flash-kernel database?

Also, 4.18 looks like it has a bcm2837-rpi-3-b-plus.dtb file. Moving forward, is that the expected dtb file for use with the Raspberry Pi 3 B+?

@satmandu I'm guessing you are using an 'upstream' or a generic kernel. They seem to have different dtb file names to the raspi2 kernels.
