Funny Error Compiling Kernel 2.6.4

I'm compiling 2.6.4 on a Fedora box and am getting a funny error, does anyone have any idea what this could be?

LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x9eef9): In function `tms380tr_reset_adapter':
: undefined reference to `request_firmware'
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x9eff4): In function `tms380tr_reset_adapter':
: undefined reference to `release_firmware'
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x9f0f1): In function `tms380tr_reset_adapter':
: undefined reference to `release_firmware'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

seems either there is a programming error made by whoever made the driver you are attempting to compile, or you configured the kernel incorectly, probably by not compiling somthing you should have, or chhosing to compile two conflicting things into the source.

go back and configure the kenrel more carefully.
