just a little description (tested with debian unstable, I assume you
have debian running)

mkdir temp #create temp directory
cd temp
apt-get source xserver-xfree86 #fetch source packages
cd xfree86-4.3.0.dfsg.1/debian/patches/ #go to the patches directory
wget  http://pompone.cs.ucsb.edu/~graziano/999-radeon-pm.diff #gets the
patch into the debian specific patches directory
cd ../../ #you are now in temp/xfree86-4.3.0.dfsg.1
dpkg-buildpackage #xservers are being build go for a coffe

When finished:
cd ..
mkdir newfiles
dpkg -x
dpkg -x xserver-xfree86_4.3.0.dfsg.1-8_i386.deb newfiles/ #extract the
deb file where your new radeon/ati modul is to your tempdirectory

Make a backup of /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.o and

and just copy the files from
newfiles/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.o and ati_drv.o into
your /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/
directory. I assume that your currently running Xserver is exactly the
same version, that you build from deb soure...

Add to your XF86Config-4:
Option          "DynamicClocks" "true"

I hope, I did not forget anything, I did this yesterday on debian
unstable, so if you want to have my compiled modules, you can download
them here:
http://www.stud.uni-karlsruhe.de/~unatk/media/radeonclock.tar.bz2 (build
for unstable debian dfsg.1-8)
