Here is what you need to do:

1. Have the driver and firmware pushed to the upstream kernel.  If it
goes upstream, it will generally be acceptable to Fedora.

2. Have the driver enabled on the rawhide kernel config.

3. Make sure the firmware gets included when building the
kernel-firmware package in rawhide.

4. What for the base version for rawhide kernels to make their way into
Fedora.
