In Linux 4.x you have to use 'brcmfmac' and replace the default u-boot (which is for Banana Pi without Wifi).
All these changes will be integrated in our next major release.

For the meantime you can use the following workaround:
aptitude update
aptitude purge u-boot-bananian
aptitude install u-boot-pro-bananian

This will remove the default u-boot and install u-boot for Banana Pro, which should also work for M1+.

Please note: Our u-boot package contains a firmware file not related to u-boot as a workaround because it is missing in our kernel package.
