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


This morning's 15.04 updates broke two of my machines as well.  After
much hair-pulling I found this bug report.

Enabling 'proposed' and updating to the kernel contained therein, or
switching to the -15 kernel is enough to get the driver to build.

However, in both cases, attempting to enable multi-screen mode via
amdcccle (with screen 1 right of screen 2) causes X to crash severely,
as soon as you hit "OK" or "Apply".

Both screen go into standby mode, the disk access light goes solid, and
the system hard-locks (can't SysRq-REISUB).

The Reset button is the only way to recover from this state, and the
dual-screen mode never got saved.

This is a fresh install of 15.04, with a "put all my stuff in" script,
hence it's theoretically identical to what was installed initially,
aside from enabling "proposed" for this attempt.

This is on a machine that has run fglrx without incident from roughly
12.04 to whatever state 15.04 was in at the end of the day yesterday.

The open source driver works fine in all respects, aside from being
slower than fglrx on this hardware.

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.


  Have no idea what happened. Contact me if you need additional details.
