> Bug description:
> SRU Justification:
>
> Impact: Due to kernel changes for CVE-2010-3081 a function that was an
> inline before has changed to a GPL only function. The fglrx driver cannot
> link against this and fails to compile. In fglrx only the old inlines (which
> have been renamed) may be used but those would lack the additional checks.
>
> Fix: Add code to detect whether the fglrx driver is compiled against a
> kernel which has this change and use the old inlines in this case. Add the
> additional checks from the CVE to the driver wrapper, so the hardening is
> done in any case.
>
> Testcase: Compile of 64bit fglrx driver fails with an error without this
> change.
