In the meantime, you could try our public backport-iwlwifi tree, where
most of the internal tree is published:
This is an out-of-tree driver, based on the linux-backports project.
You could try the core56 branch, for instance, or even master and
check if the problem is still there. If not, we can try to look for
the patch that fixes it and push it to stable.
