It's just a rough guess, but I'd say Q2.

There's no need for proprietary drivers on Neo900 for either WiFi or
modem. The only thing you need is a firmware blob for WiFi chipset
(which is *not* executed on CPU), so the only thing you need to use it
with Replicant is to put it into proper directory so the kernel can
find it and upload to the chipset.

Also, Goldelico Replicant images for GTA04 already include the WiFi
firmware and in future should work with Neo900 as well.
