Probably because:

The main reason it's not in AUR is that linux32 and possibly udev0 violate AUR policy ("no packages from official repos").
With testing/linux working it's becoming less of an issue, but it still requires selective downgrading shoddy library tweaks (libudev0) and right now there's no way to avoid this.

Several patches to standard arch packages are required to get the drivers to build / run properly. They can't simply be added to the AUR in their current state.
