Bug#704565: release-notes: warning for fglrx-driver users

Package: release-notes
Severity: important
X-debbugs-CC: pkg-fglrx-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org


 Upgrading from Squeeze to Wheezy with fglrx-driver will break their 
 graphical environment since fglrx upstream dropped such old video card
 support from it, and now package maintainers provide such legacy support
 as fglrx-legacy-driver package(*).

 Unfortunately, it seems to be late to be included to Wheezy, so we
 should __warn__ to our users for it, in release note, at least. 

 Also, will push it to wheezy-backports and note it to release note seems
 to be reasonable, IMO.
