Bug#471231: Is /etc/init.d/atieventsd needed?

Package: fglrx-driver
Version: 8.45.5-1
Severity: normal
File: /etc/init.d/atieventsd
User: initscripts-ng-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: obsolete-initscript

When I tried to enable insserv (boot sequence organizer using LSB init.d
script dependencies) I noticed following error:

error: Obsolete conffile /etc/init.d/atieventsd left behind by package fglrx-driver

After looking into package I found that atieventsd is started by
/etc/init.d/fglrx-driver which has correct LSB header. The atieventsd file
is superfluous and shall be removed from the package.

Best regards
