I didn't follow PS3 patches very closely on ppc-devel, but you might try 
the powerpc.git tree, it probably would have more ps3 patches than the 
kernel.org releases.

Well, you do get all the same flags under 2.6 as those used by the kernel 
itself when compiling external modules just by doing "make -C <kernel tree 
path> M=<external modules path> modules" and your Makefile should just 
contain the minimum... And that's indeed what is done by the Makefile in 
the vendor zd1211 driver. Try adding "V=1" to the make command line and 
see if you get all the same flags as the kernel itself. You might want to 
comment out this line:

EXTRA_CFLAGS += -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -pipe

from the zd1211 Makefile though.
