Make old drivers to work with new kernel


I have a deb package of em28xx empia dvb-t tuner drivers for kernel 2.6.35-28-generic i386

I don't have any source code to compile it for new kernel.

My question is, is it possible to make these old drivers from this deb file to work with ubuntu 11.04. (current kernel is 2.6.38-8-generic)?

These drivers aren't merged. To get it work, I downloaded drivers according to the kernel version from here.

But, there's no new drivers for new kernel (ubuntu 11.04) and I can't find any source code to compile it myself.

My USB tuner is Kworld 380UR

lsusb shows
Bus 002 Device 005: ID eb1a:e359 eMPIA Technology, Inc.
and the syslog and kern.log says:
May 15 15:43:09 indrek-laptop kernel: [ 7671.008054] usb 2-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
