You'd have to tell use which symbol is unresolved (from kernel log).

Do you need just the cinergyT2 driver or others, too?

For USB devices there's a pitfall with timeouts in the
usb_* API calls which have changed from jiffies to millisecs.
You might want to check those, the compiler won't warn you
about this.
