Seems like indeed nobody packaged it yet.

Maybe John wants to add it to the iwl5000-firmware package so you
should ask him (cc'ed) first before actually submitting a package.

why wouldn't this be part of the linux-firmware general "all firmware"
package instead?

Yeah we should move all of them into linux-firmware and make
linux-firmware obsolete the separate firmware packages; but this
should be done upstream.

* Because the kitchen-sink approach to packaging isn't a good one
* Because at some point, in a utopian future, we'd like to be able to
replace the binary firmware chunks with free-licensed bits
* Because we don't want to force everyone to update everytime one piece
of firmware updates

Take your pick.

Just a heads up that iwl5150-firmware has been reviewed at
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=558550 and built for F11,
F12 and Rawhide. Thanks John for putting the package together so
quickly after my initial request!
