Upon further inspection: The flash-kernel from the rpi3 PPA https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-raspi2/+archive/ubuntu/ppa-rpi3 is only published for Xenial and there, the boot script sets the fdt address to 0x100 instead of 0x2000000. And that works without explicitly loading the fdt.

So it seems I had the "old" flash-kernel from before upgrading to Yakkety and that worked. The new version tries to load the fdt from 0x2000000 where it isn't located.
