Somewhere I got lost among the replies.. but maybe this is worth
something. No, I haven't done that, but it might be possible. I don't
think this has anything to do with kernel, right? We're talking Xorg
driver here, not dri, so the driver might not compile against a new
version of Xorg - or a newer GCC. Of course I could be totally off mark.

But, it shouldn't be too hard to try as apt-get build-dep
xserver-xorg-video-ati should still bring in all required dev libs. Then
just try your old package with checkinstall or something?
