Works fine for me with 2.6.17. Something must be broken elsewhere in your system to prevent headers being properly detected. From your original pastes, wispy-tools is not compiled on a system where the autoconf can find detatch support. Until you fix that, it will not work.

There are no "upgrade patches". Your kernel has it, or it doesn't.
