VCP Drivers installation


I have a problem installing the VCP driver for linux The error message is when I run make:
gcc -Wall -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -I/lib/modules/3.7.0-10.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/build/include -D__SMP__ -DSMP -DMODVERSIONS -include /lib/modules/3.7.0-10.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/build/include/config/modversions.h -I/usr/src/linux-3.7.0-10.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/drivers/usb/serial/ -O -c -o ftdi_sio.o ftdi_sio.c
In file included from /lib/modules/3.7.0-10.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/build/include/linux/kernel.h:6:0,
from ftdi_sio.c:251:
/lib/modules/3.7.0-10.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64/build/include/linux/linkage.h:5:25: fatal error: asm/linkage.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [ftdi_sio.o] Error 1

On my laptop I got the error message there the right linkage.h is used but from init.h make does not find the proper: #include <linux/compiler.h> (no such file or directory)
I think this continues with the linux/.... files.
Do you know what variable to modify to get the makefile working?
