In my case, a fresh 5.7.6 build on my OPi2E, the WiFi is working, although I'm using "old school" /etc/network/interfaces with NetworkManager disabled ...

I have tested a lot of kernels starting from 4.14.65 and even 5.7.6 (current dev build) - no success. I don't have any idea how it happened, but the built-in module seems to have died. Sorry for false bug report.
