I don't know if this is a possible fix, but someone posted this on the LKML (and got some flak from kernel devs, since this is a patch to the ATI driver, not to the kernel);

Note that this is for 2.6.23 kernels, but it may work for 2.6.22 kernels as well. Personally, I'm still on Feisty so I can't test it, but if someone who's already on Gutsy wants to rebuild the fglrx driver using these instructions and then report on his/her failure/success, that'd be great!

Here's the geist of it:

After installing fglrx-kernel-source, but before compiling the kernel module, make the following change in the file firegl_public.h, which is found inside the archive /usr/src/fglrx.tar.bz2, and installed in /usr/src/modules/fglrx/firegl_public.h:

Then compile. Hopefully, it should work...
