Not if it's a binary-driver...

You upgraded the kernel...

Seriously - if this driver is not included in the vanilla- or  
distribution-kernel, get the heck rid of it (the hardware).
With very few exceptions it's usually not worth the trouble.
One of these exceptions is Areca (don't know if the driver is in now  
RHEL/CentOS) - the guy maintaining the driver at Areca actually  
responds to email enquiries.
But then, they distribute source and not BLOBs.
