kernel 2.6.5-7.139-default is from Novell/SuSE Linux Enterprise Server
9, Service Pack 1.  So, you *should* be able to use the megaraid_sas
driver source from here:
which contains the driver, and prebuilt modules for SLES9 SP3 in DKMS
format.  You grab the kernel-source files from SLES9 SP1 and have DKMS
rebuild the driver for you against that kernel.  The
megaraid_sas-v00.00.03.09-src.tgz file included inside the above .tgz
looks like it even has a SLES9 SP1-specific patch, which should make
it possible to build the driver with DKMS quite easily.

Hope this gives you enough pointers to get started.
