Well. I think what you are missing is a wireless driver in linux
upstream. We backport on a as-needed basis so the reason is probably
that none of the upstream drivers require the pci_alloc_irq_vectors()
function. So what wireless driver are we talking about here. Is it a
proprietary driver?

Yes, we are talking about a proprietary driver.
Does that mean I should just add pci_alloc_irq_vectors function myself and send it here as a patch?

You could, but I asked about your driver because the backports project exports its symbols using EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(). This means that only GPL-compatible drivers can use it. This has been a conscious decision (see [1]).
