It works. *shrug*

There are two issues to be aware of:

* Some mSATA SSDs are not detected reliably at boot.  The KingSpec
  modules sold by Wim work, but the Transcend ones offered by Soekris
  are flakey.

* The OpenBSD installer does not recognize the 6501 as a multiprocessor
  system and will only install an SP kernel by default.  A manually
  installed MP kernel recognizes the 6501 as a dual-CPU system,
  though.
