Fedora people can publish EPEL packages, but I'm don't know Red Hat's
stance on kernel module packages.
For Fedora, not having it in the upstream kernel will make it very difficult
to get in Fedora proper, and doing COPRs may be a pain since kernel builds
happen a lot for Fedora.
When it is actually in Fedora there won't be a package for the kernel module
(as it will be part of the kernel-modules or kernel-modules-extra packages).
If it does get accepted for say 4.8, then getting a backported version into
previously released Fedora's that may be running older kernels may be

Fedora splits the version into two pieces. The first part is the version
and would be something like 0.0. As a prerelease the release should be
0.x.dateandorcommit, where x is an integer that gets bumped every release
and the rest can be a mix of date, tag or commit ID.
So the final version might look like 0.0-0.1.20160701 .
