something wrong with either port net/iwi-firmare or iwi driver in tree on current

It is happens on fresh 7-CURRENT.

$ man 4 iwi

     This driver requires firmware to be loaded before it will work.
You need
     to install the net/iwi-firmware port before ifconfig(8) will work

/usr/ports/net/iwi-firmware# make
===>  iwi-firmware-2.4 iwi(4) support is already included in your tree.

$ find /usr/src -name '*iwi*' | fgrep -v iwic

What is official way to fetch firmware now ?
