With kernel 3.14, terrible radeonsi performance with a RadeonHD 7770 resuming from suspend/sleep - "*ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!"

Since kernel 3.14 on Fedora 20, I can't suspend my desktop computer anymore. The suspend/resume operation "seems to work" generally speaking, but it borks the state of the graphics driver. This used to work fine in kernel 3.12 (and I think 3.13 too).
Symptoms: extremely sluggish operations for anything that involves 3D (ex: gnome shell animations). This persists until a complete reboot (reloading gnome shell, or using "systemctl isolate multi-user.target && systemctl isolate graphical.target" doesn't solve it).
The journalctl output seems to indicate that the radeon driver is freaking out about UVD, among other things:
[drm:uvd_v1_0_start] ERROR UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
[drm:uvd_v1_0_start] ERROR UVD not responding, giving up!!!
[drm:si_startup] ERROR radeon: failed initializing UVD (-1).
