* link to upstream bug report, if any
N/A

Steps to reproduce:
Use Linux or Linux-zen 5.13.x packages and observe high CPU usage while video decoding on AMD RX6700 XT (and possibly other RX6x00 cards?)
Reportedly OBS fails to encode videos using GPU as well (kindly see reddit URLs in the aforementioned bbs topic) but that's not my use case so I cannot confirm this.
This task depends upon

Could you check with linux-mainline 5.14rc3? A number of amdgpu-related issues have been resolved in rc3.

Wanted to comment I'm having the same issue on Fedora, so this is likely to be an upstream/mainline issue with the 5.13 series.

See: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1988772

I have yet to test a 5.14 kernel.

I tested Fedora's 5.14.0-0.rc4.20210804gitd5ad8ec3cfb5.36.fc35.x86_64, this is still broken there, presumably it is here as well.

Linux 5.13.10 seems to incorporate the patch already.
