Please backport Xorg ATI driver (xserver-xorg-video-ati)

Bug #91189 reported by Hezekiah Carty
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Dapper Backports

Bug Description

The current version on this driver in Dapper has several 2D and 3D rendering problems which are fixed or greatly improved in the newest driver release (6.6.3 in Feisty). These rendering errors include problems with the default Ubuntulooks GTK+2 theme.

I have compiled the 6.6.3 drivers manually and they have fixed the rendering issues for me, but it would be nice to have a proper fix available for the community. I don't have the know how to tackle this my self but I will be happy to assist in any way possible in the backport process.
