>
> fyi i will add to my #78 above, that a fresh wubi 10.04.1 install, followed by enabling restricted drivers to allow fglrx, does successfully install 2:8.723.1-0ubuntu5 against kernel 2.6.32-24.39 and i have a working system again.
> i'm wary about upgrading kernel yet, as i need a working system for the next couple of weeks.

> 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.
