You need the #define as specified and a prototype for

int rtems_dec21140_driver_attach (struct rtems_bsdnet_ifconfig *config, 
int attach);

This driver is not PowerPC specific.  It is in libchip and actually 
works on PowerPC, SPARC, and x86.

The driver has some debug which can be turned on.  It is conditionally
compiled in.

It you don't have the interrupt map, the most it can do is recognize
the PCI device ID.  It won't work but it is a good sign.
