ATI Catalyst driver since 11.7 version can't work with hybrid GPU?

At least in my desktop computer it doesn't. Why newer drivers are worse than old one?

I've got Radeon 5770 and 6570 in my desktop and ati-stream-sdk-v2.3-lnx32 on my OpenSUSE 11.3.

When I install ATI Catalyst driver with a version 11.7 or higher, OpenCL doesn't see my Radeon 5770 at all. I mean CLinfo sample tells me that there is only 2 ATI Stream devices in my comp (including AMD CPU).

Most interesting that driver 11.6 can see with all the 3 devices (2 GPU + 1 CPU) and works fine with all this hardware.

 

What happened to drivers since 11.7 version? Why hybrid GPU are not supported any more?
