The obvious candidate is commit 3f04b6f33f05f8a24698f934a23462269b84917d Author: Chris Wilson <email@example.com> Date: Thu Aug 1 14:49:36 2013 +0100 sna/dri: Disable TripleBuffering by default for compositors which is more or less at the request of the gnome-shell authors.

(Except you didn't actually say this was a regression. And haven't even attached the Xorg log or stated the exact nature of the slowdown).
Comment 5 Volker Holthaus 2013-08-06 13:42:46 UTC
The regression was the slow animation of the windows, when you change to the activity screen and choose workplace with another application. The applications behavior is normal.
