Re: Not an old Pi
The problem is apparently "a Linux issue" which the Raspberry Pi Foundation don't care enough about to fix themselves.
It was fixed in their version of the Linux kernel, but they are trying to keep the kernel as "vanilla" as possible now that Pi support has been added upstream.
Unfortunately the upstream devs decided that all Raspberry Pis would be recognised as BCM2835 in order to identify the platform. Hopefully one day they will correct that.
