Pi2 build boots fine on the Pi3, however it doesn't support the on-board wifi. Digging around it seems the wifi is custom and the module driver to load is the brcmfmac. This module is available in my RPi2 build.
Also, there are firmware files that need to be installed under /lib/firmware/brcm. This firmware is not included in my RPi2 build.
Might get some additional help from the RPi Distro repo on github.
Note that it seems that the Pi3 wifi may have some issues. It may not have good range without an antenna.
The Bluetooth appears to be loaded but I'm not really positive of that yet.
