Updated fglrx driver fixes GPL violation

It's been found that shipping prebuilt proprietary kernel modules is 
in violation of the GPL license.

Since is pro open source we adjust the way we provide
support for propritetary drivers.

In order to comply with GPL, this update switches to dkms source based
setup that builds the needed modules at kernel / driver install time.

This update also adds support for kernel 4.4 series.
