I have come across a few devices that have arm64 processors but did not include the arm64 OS libraries so only load armv7 binaries. These are generally low end devices.

I believe it is largely an issue of getting the build configuration and toolchains correct for cross compiling for armv6hf. Although given Pi 3s are arm64 but Raspbian is still armv6hf I guess we would need a build for a number of archs (armv6hf, armv7, arm64) depending on what OS people are running.

For us there is the extra step of getting it all setup on vulcan to build and package etc.
