The best effort in your case would be to write the development core team an email an ask for that action.

This is a Linux kernel patch, not a FreeBSD kernel patch. This will require a C/C++ software engineer with FreeBSD kernel experience to port and make functional. Nobody in pfSense will fix this for you (and definitely not for free). That patch for Linux was done by Qualcomm, maybe you should ask them to also make a patch for FreeBSD.

If you want to have more help with this, ask FreeBSD, not pfSense. Once it is in FreeBSD, it will also be in pfSense.
