I think it's only for backwards compatibility with old versions of
those tools. There are some older drivers that use WEXT as the
native interface, but CFG80211 based drivers have a netlink
interface.

It used to be rather hard to write a new DRM driver, but that has
improved a lot recently. You might be able to fit your driver into
drivers/gpu/drm/tinydrm/, or maybe do something a bit more complex
like drivers/gpu/drm/pl111/ or drivers/gpu/drm/stm/.
