As per the readme, this driver is fairly non-standard and not included in the kernel, and you must manually define the source. The options are all in the readme under the 2870 section, but I don't suggest using this driver, if I recall it doesn't perform very well in monitor mode (if at all) and there is a proper mac80211 in-kernel driver.
