Are you using iwi-firmware from ports? there seems to be a perfectly
working driver,

  # kldload if_iwi

That's what people suggest you to compile from sys/dev/iwi, but it's
also a loadable as kernel module. If it is not installed in
/boot/kernel, then it will also be built with the normal kernel build
