Huh?  With my git version ( I see this:

$ git clone [...]
Checking 23061 files out...
 100% (23061/23061) done
$ cd wireless-2.6
Branch everything set up to track remote branch refs/remotes/origin/everything.
Switched to a new branch "everything"

But I hope this isn't problematic. Or maybe it is. Do you have the
same file?

$ md5sum drivers/net/wireless/libertas/main.c
d8aae2388a0e0d94e2bee5b0db317f0c  drivers/net/wireless/libertas/main.c

I'm asking because in my git tree is there is no "set_frezable"
in main.c. Actually I have have neither "frezable" nor "freezable":

$ grep frez drivers/net/wireless/libertas/*
$ grep freez drivers/net/wireless/libertas/*

When you look at lbs_ethtool_get_sset_count(), then you see
that it mentions MESH_STATS_NUM. If you use the compact flash
card, you're probably stuck at firmware 5.0.16p1. In this case
you won't have MESH at all. So you can simply uncomment all the
related code for this.

BTW, in my case the line

        .get_sset_count = lbs_ethtool_get_sset_count,

is in ethtool.c:224, so I'm pretty sure you aren't on wireless-2.6,
branch everything. See also
