I tested the r-pi2 image today with rpi3,and after manually updating the 
firmware files on sd card (except for kernel7.img), i got void to boot 
correctly on r-pi3. Otherwise i would be stuck on rainbow screen.

Official images are a bit outdated and only support r-pi2. Afaik there is 
already a raspberry pi firmware package in void repo that provides the 
necessary files. A simple arm image rebuild would resolve this problem.

Someone already prepared support for aarch64, I guess there won't be an 
official armv7 build for the rpi3.
Until some of the developers have the hardware themselves and have setup a 
repository and a build server you would have to build it yourself or use 
the images that you use currently.

This doesn't make sense, there is no 64-support for rpi3 at all yet.

If rebuilding the rpi2 image solves it, we should just do that.
