I had a similar problem (altough on 6.0), which was solved by building 
the module libmpool:

 6    1 0xc0ccf000 3211c    if_myk.ko
 7    2 0xc0d02000 2518     libmbpool.ko


Again, this was on 6.0. I'd suggest you upgrade to 6.X if you still have 
troubles. I have been running this driver for about 20 days now, without 
any problem whatsoever.
