Attached patchset enables video decode acceleration on some newer radeon cards. Inclusion in upstream kernel is planned for 3.10. Please consider for inclusion in the Gentoo 3.9 patchset.
This requires new firmware which is already part of x11-drivers/radeon-ucode and will be part of sys-kernel/linux-firmware soon.
Can you just ping this bug when the new firmware hits linux-firmware?

The UVD firmware is now part of sys-kernel/linux-firmware-20130421.
A few updates to the UVD code have been made, I will produce a new patch tarball today.
