[785G] Slow video playback after suspend/resume
Is this a known problem or should I report it as a bug? I'm seeing it since May and up to current git, with kernel versions 2.6.32 up to 2.6.35. It is as if the CPU (or the GPU) was half as fast as after a fresh boot. Rebooting fixes the problem. XBMC seems the most affected player (note: it doesn't use xv; xv players are not affected at all). The effect is unnoticeable with standard definition videos, but makes HD ones unwatchable; it is present both with UMS and KMS. Audio is fine.
Thanks for any help
If I remember correctly, xbmc uses GL... so this *could* (i.e., this is a complete guess on my part) be a result of the GPU clock getting stuck low after a resume. Xv being unaffected suggests that this is all in the GPU and not related to the CPU.

Please, could someone help me debugging this? I've also tried updating the BIOS, but it didn't help. Also, non GLSL games seem unaffected. What could be different after a resume? Any hint is welcome
Well, in case anyone is having the same problem, switching to r600g solved the problem for me. That's quite strange, as AFAIK mesa/gallium run from userspace.
