Because Intel plays by the rules, which means when they develop their driver they help building the entire framework (be it wireless stack or DRM drivers for accelerated 3D). So the changes are not easy to backport to an ancient kernel, compared to someone who just shoehorns a proprietary blob into whatever API exists.
