I suppose, the reason of the problem is a bad path to include files.
You need an unpacked and configured (make config; make dep) kernel to pass
its include directory as the include path.

The error-prone way to recompile the driver is to replace the driver in
drivers/net subdirectory of your kernel source tree by the new one and run
`make modules'.
