It is in rawhide as of today, and it should be upstream in -mm soon.

I think you are confused by the fact that Intel is packaging a
snapshot of the stack to enable their driver on older kernels.
This should not be necessary for us.

The iwlwifi driver is the new version, that does _not_ require binary
userland bits.  There should be no licensing issue with the driver in
Fedora.  I'm not 100% sure what the firmware license will be, but that
shouldn't be significantly different from the current ipw2x00 drivers.
