Right before the system go to suspend, the following line appears in

[drm:rv730_stop_dpm] *ERROR* Could not force DPM to low

After wakeup i see this in dmesg:

[drm:rv770_dpm_set_power_state] *ERROR* rv770_set_sw_state failed

Also i notice a degradation in performance in some games (e.g. in
Teeworlds before the suspend i have 60fps, after suspend - 30-40 fps).

Does this work better with a 3.14 kernel?

I've just built 3.14 RC6 and it's all the the same with it.

dmesg (Radeon HD 4550, 3.15.0)

I have the same problem with Radeon HD 4550 using kernel 3.14.5 or 3.15.0 or vanilla 3.15-rc1.
I have also noticed that `[drm:rv730_stop_dpm] *ERROR* Could not force DPM to low` appears only after some gaming/etc.

I'm also affected by this bug and I can confirm the performance hit
after resuming the system from suspend.
