That's, er...quite a lot of stuff.

You should still be able to install the last 3.14 kernel and the first
3.15 kernel build from Koji. If you can do that, and confirm that the
bug occurs with the first 3.15 kernel build but not with the last 3.14
one, I'd say file a bug against the kernel with the appropriate logs
attached, and see what the kernel maintainers suggest.
