I am not yet familiar enough with Ubuntu but did you also run some
"install" target after rebuilding, that you forgot to mention here?

Another thing you might want to check: Ubuntu places the firmware in
/lib/firmware/<kernel_version>/zd1211rw while the standard driver is
looking for it under /lib/firmware/zd1211rw so a symlink did the trick
nicely in my case (I'm running a wholly customised kernel but I solved
this specific issue before moving away from stock kernels)
