Thanks for pointing out what I should have found by
trying a   locate ati_remote !!  I just didn't think that
the ATI remote would merit inclusion in the kernel.

Thanks for all the instructions and for the patch.
I downloaded the patch from where it was attached
to the mail in Gmail.  But I can't read it.  It appears to
be a binary file when I try using   less   on it.

I get the feeling that the fact that I can't read it is probably
like my not thinking to use locate for the built-in support.
But, just in case it's a Gmail quirk, you might want to
consider an alternate/backup method for making the patch

I do understand how to make the replacement module,
it's just that it seems reasonable that I should be able to 
read the patch before applying it.

Thanks again for all the help.
