Yes, if there is no support in the mainline kernel there should be an 
effort to make that happen. However, keep in mind that the linux driver 
project guys working with the kernel.org kernel - thats something which 
wont make it into CentOS for another 3 years or so.

I guess one option thats always available is to get the driver into 
mainline, then backport and manage just that one tree in/for CentOS.
