spi-bcm2835 or spi-bcm2708?

Sun Jan 17, 2016 11:16 pm

Is spi-bcm2835 the default for all models of Pi in the most recent versions of Raspbian/NOOBS?

Is spi-bcm2708 completely deprecated?

Thanks

I think Noralf Tronnes comments are as official as you need: https://github.com/notro/spi-bcm2708/wiki
