I am having almost the exact same errors with 2.6.5-mm5 sources. I've been 
emailing driverloader support, and they basically tell me to roll my own fix, 
or just use the default 2.6.5 kernel. Not very helpful. I guess now that the 
fedora kernel is having the same issues, you should try and email the 
linuxant support. They will probably be more inclined to fix this error with 
a popular distributions's kernel.
