That means that the driver hasn't been compiled
but it is trying to copy it ...

If I encounter troubles of that kind I usually
take the following steps:

cd /your/kernel-source/directory/
cp .config ~/.config
make mrproper
cp ~/.config .config
make menuconfig
(exit & save)
make dep .... and so forth

Cheers,
Tink
