ibdriver and the 2.6.35-23-generic-pae kernel

I need to get my iBurst Kyocera USB pppoe dongle working.

Unfortunately the 2.6.31 kernel removed deprecated network API calls which broke th ibdriver.

However, I found a patch here:

Although this fixes a lot of the issues, I still get the following errors when I try to 'make' the ibdriver:
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.35-23-generic-pae/build SUBDIRS=/home/dave/Downloads/hardware/drivers/ibdriver-1.3.4-linux-2.6.28 modules

make: *** [default] Error 2
Can anyone give me assistance on how to resolve these?

Alternatively, the pppoe package in Ubuntu 10.10 describes itself as drivers for pppoe devices, but I am unable to see how to get it to see my modem.
