They don't ship the firmware in the kernel. They ship it on the filesystem.

The structure of zd1211rw never really changed. They might be shipping 
the vendor driver instead. Bear in mind that the vendor driver supports 
a lot more hardware and a lot more connectivity options, several Ubuntu 
users sent complaints to me when their kernel maintainers dropped zd1211 
and added zd1211rw...
