Error compiling kernel 2.6.4 with dpt_i2o driver

Dear All,

My company is running a Degian GNU Linux on a dual Intel PII 933MHz system with 1 GB RAM.
Currently it is running kernel 2.4.22 which supports our Adaptec 2100S raid controller using the dpt_i2o driver.

We decided to change to kernel 2.6.x (I have tried 2.6.0, 2.6.1, 2.6.4) but it fails to compile.
Here are some lines from the output:

drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.c:32:2 #error Please convert me to Documentation/DMA-mapping.txt
drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.c: In function 'adpt_install_hba':
drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.c:997: warning: passing arg 2 of 'request_irq' from incompatible pointer type
drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.c: I function 'adpt_scsi_to_i25':
drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.c:2118: structure has no member named 'address'
drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.c: At top level:
drivers/scsi/dpt_i2o.c:165: warning: 'dptids' defined but not used

Is it a bug in the kernel source or I have miss configured something?

Here is the result of the ver_linux script:

If some fields are empty or look unusual you may have an old version.
Compare to the current minimal requirements in Documentation/Changes.
