Hi numivasi, Welcome to lq. I took a look at the tarball. The readme states all you need to do is a make and make install, however, I would suggest some research or a question in this forum before installing this. The readme also states this is an experimental driver without much function. I would be certain that this is the correct driver before I installed it and botched my install.
Good luck.

Ok, googled around and found you a guide or two. Have a look at these.

One of those should get you there.
Good luck.
