linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-3-generic version 2.6.24.4-3.10 also still shows AMD "Testing use only, Unsupported hardware" watermark on Mobility Radeon 9700, despite changelog stating "fglrx: Added signature and control files to remove watermark".

    - Corruption will no longer be noticed in the lower right corner
      of the display or on the mouse pointer after the system is
      running for a long period of time. (LP: #106148)

    from packages generated by the ATI installer.
  * fglrx-control:
    - Remove fireglcontrol*.desktop, and install amdcccle*.desktop from
      the extracted installer instead.
    - Install amdcccle in this package, not the driver.
