Yes, the driver needs to be reviewed in linux-wireless list. I recommend
submitting the whole driver in a patchset with one file per patch, which
seems to be the easiest way to review a full driver. The final move will
be in just one commit moving the driver, just like patch 7 does here. As
an example see how wilc1000 review was done.

Device tree bindings needs to be reviewed by the DT maintainer so CC
devicetree on that patch.

But do note that there's currently one new driver in review queue, so it
will most likely take some time before wfx is reviewed.
