Not exactly:
You can compile the module - that's it. There's calls to pci_drv_register() and
pci_drv_unregister that are not part of the 2.2.x kernels. Thus you're stuck
with unresolved symbols and an unloadable module.
Reworking this would mean to reimplement the 2.2.x semantics which would
basically result in a new driver version.
