I am working with a vendor that provides drivers that aren't compatible with PI3's ARMHF architecture. Unfortunately this vendor doesn't plan on releasing compatible drivers anytime soon.
Excuse my inexperience, but is it possible to compile the current Raspbian OS to 'downgrade' from hard to soft float support? If not we will need to find a stable distro with armel support for the PI 3 or another solution (cross-compiling?).
