Why this driver isn't going to be mainlined in the kernel if an opensource driver already exists?
at least is what some githubs pages claim.. that there is an official opensource linux driver by realtek for this card.
https://github.com/RangeeGmbH/rtl8821ce this page claim to be one driver based on the other ones by realtek
