short answer: no, this is not what FAH 26 will ship with. There is a period of 
'unfreeze' that happens after the rest of Fedora releases Beta and before final
is released. 

longer answer: we can open a BZ to get this update excepted and into stable sooner.
since it only affects atomic host it should be pretty easy to get it approved. 

I opened a BZ [1] and proposed it as a freeze exception.
