Currently 6lowpan over ieee802.15.4 links is only available for kernel
version >= 4.0, I do not know why it is not available on older kernel
versions. You could try to remove the version check and fix the problems
that will probably occur. I am currently looking into 6lowpan, but on
bluetooth because these are the cheapest radios. ;-)

Which Linux driver do you want to use for your radio?

The ieee802.15.4 modules are in this file:
