The Fedora kernel more or less tracks the upstream kernel directly, and
the general line is "its 99% likely to not be in Fedora's kernel unless
it's in the official Linux kernel."  So the best way to get stuff like
this in the upstream kernel is to submit those patches to the
appropriate lists (lkml, netdev, etc).  If you're not the maintainer,
then I'd email them and urge them to start submitting patches upstream.
