As shown at https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/  this file does not yet exist upstream so Gentoo cannot package it.

Intel Wifi is known to actively advance the allowable versions of firmware releases even before they are published.  The message is normal and expected until it is released.
