I also get this errors when try to install ATI driver on kernel linux-image-2.6.32-24.43. There is sign that this error is related to kernel update 2.6.32-24.43. Look at the DKMS build.log that OP posted:

/var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.723.1/build/2.6.x/kcl_ioctl.c: In function ‘KCL_IOCTL_AllocUserSpace32’:
/var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.723.1/build/2.6.x/kcl_ioctl.c:196: error: implicit declaration of function ‘compat_alloc_user_space’

In the changelog of 2.6.32-24.43 generic kernel there are the lines:

  * x86-64, compat: Retruncate rax after ia32 syscall entry tracing
    - CVE-2010-3301
  * compat: Make compat_alloc_user_space() incorporate the access_ok()
    - CVE-2010-3081

I thinks these changes are related to fglrx build errors. I want to try a previous version of 2.6.32-24 generic kernel. Because ATI drivers works with 2.6.32-23 generic kernel. Anyone know where can I find the previous versions of 2.6.32-24 generic kernel?
