Yes, this is still the case. There is no appropriate SPI driver in the upstream so it'll have to be written and the Raspberry Pi team are far too busy getting the board out of the door and all the other tasks such as getting an office set up, geting cases designed, getting documentation in place and getting legals sorted, to be writing SPI drivers any time soon. Its simply too far down in their list of priorities.
Writing an SPI driver would seem, on the face of it, exactly the kind of task of which the community would be capable. I'm sure that such a driver would emerge in the months after the boards start getting into the hands of the enthusiasts.
