[Bug 1479913] Re: SRU request: fglrx.ko fails because of backported GPL-only 'pci_ignore_hotplug' symbol



I've been following this all day and helping to collect up the
duplicates, but still haven't fixed the problem; in fact, it's gotten
worse since I enabled the Proposed repository and upgraded:

Before, I was getting the login screen, but getting bounced back as soon
as I entered the password, however, now I am getting the login screen
with just a flashing cursor, no keyboard or mouse, then after a few
seconds it locks up completely and I have to press the reset button to

Bug description:
  An update to the lts-vivid backported kernel (3.19.0-26) in Trusty and to the default kernel in Vivid, pulled in a commit that made pci_ignore_hotplug() GPL only. As a result, the DKMS module fails.

  [Test Case]
  Install the new packages and check that DKMS doesn't fail.

  [Regression Potential]
  Low, the patches are already included wily.
