Bug description:
  SRU Request:


  The fglrx driver can't be loaded unless the amdgpu driver is
  blacklisted (as we already do with the radeon driver).

  [Test Case]
  1. Install fglrx on Ubuntu 15.10
  2. Reboot
  3. Check the output of the "lsmod | grep fglrx" command

  Expected results: the fglrx module should be loaded.

  Actual results:
  The kernel module can't be loaded because of the amdgpu driver.

  [Regression Potential]
  Low. We already blacklist the radeon driver; now that amdgpu is available in the kernel we should do the same.

  The fglrx packages should blacklist amdgpu so that the said driver does not prevent fglrx from loading.
