You could try the generic driver and disable all patched drivers from
the build. If you can work with generic, you are pretty much
independent of the kernel (e.g. the master will compile). To disable
all patched drivers from the build use something like:

$ ./configure --enable-generic --disable-e100 --disable-8139too
--disable-e1000 --disable-r8169
