We need to deploy for @bsiegert so NetBSD folk can continue working on their race detector support for Go 1.11. (#24354, #19273). Those depend depends on being about to run x/build/cmd/release on updated buildlet images.

/cc @bcmills @andybons

from the netbsd-amd64/Makefile,

$ cat Makefile 
        go install
        upload --verbose --file=netbsd-amd64-gce.tar.gz --public dev-go-builder-data/vm-image-netbsd-amd64-8branch.tar.gz

        go install
        upload --verbose --file=netbsd-amd64-gce.tar.gz --public go-builder-data/vm-image-netbsd-amd64-8branch.tar.gz

        gcloud compute --project go-dashboard-dev images create netbsd-amd64-8branch --source-uri gs://dev-go-builder-data/vm-image-netbsd-amd64-8branch.tar.gz

        gcloud compute --project symbolic-datum-552 images create netbsd-amd64-8branch --source-uri gs://go-builder-data/vm-image-netbsd-amd64-8branch.tar.gz

... you'll want to change those "8branch" references to something like "80r1c1".

Then test it with x/build/cmd/debugnewvm. If a build passes, then you can update x/build/dashboard/builders.go with the new GCE image name.

Then, to speed up future builds, you'll want to create a snapshot of that buildlet disk in our region, using x/build/cmd/coordinator/buildongce -make-basepin.
