Why that rather old kernel? If you are able to download the driver
sources for Marvell you then should be able to update to the current FC3
kernel too.

I wonder how often again we have to deal with this kind of question.

You do not need the full kernel sources. I guess the driver source
makefile does not look under /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/ for the
kernel includes. Instruct it to do so. If the drives sources indeed
require the complete kernel sources, then please read the release notes
on how to deal with the kernel src.rpm. The list archive is full of
further hints and comments about this.
