catalyst 13.4 does not load on system with CONFIG_AGP=n

I have recompiled my kernel with CONFIG_AGP=n (The last chipset with AGP support is at least 10 years old and only Intel integrated graphics (like i915) still use the AGP code as a hack) and by doing so, it has broken fglrx with:

lano1106@whippet2 ~ sad $ dmesg | grep fglrx
[ 2.897539] fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.
[ 2.899186] fglrx: Unknown symbol KCL_AGP_FindCapsRegisters (err 0)

I have just moved this function outside the #if CONFIG_AGP block and it is ok to do so since it does not contain anything specific to agp. only generic pci functions.

I want you to find in this blog informations about C++ programming that I had a hard time to find in the first place on the web.
