I can confirm the issue with the 8260 and the same error message. Happens since the upgrade to 5.3

Can confirm the same issue with 8260 and 5.3.0-arch1-1 (see full details of card below):

01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Wireless 8260 [8086:24f3] (rev 3a)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Wireless 8260 [8086:0050]
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 133
Memory at dcb00000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3
Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
Capabilities: [40] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting
Capabilities: [140] Device Serial Number f4-8c-50-ff-ff-06-61-39
Capabilities: [14c] Latency Tolerance Reporting
Capabilities: [154] L1 PM Substates
Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
Kernel modules: iwlwifi

If needed, I can post full journal or portions of journal from affected boots when I'm back in front of my box tonight.

--edit-- added full journal (well removing a lot of noise from baloo) from an affected boot. Also added one that is only the errors from the same boot.

Might also be related to this thread on lkml:
Unfortunately, reading the 5.3.1 changelog it seems that upstream has not yet fixed the issue.

I just ran into the same issue myself, same card (see relevant attached file)

I attached the log with errors only and the full log aswell.

Should be fixed in this patch:

I see this too but it only seems to be triggered when using the latest version of IWD (0.21-1). Downgrading to IWD v0.20-3 works around the issue for me while running the latest (v5.3.1) kernel.

My card is the same: Intel Corporation Wireless 8260 [8086:24f3] (rev 3a)

I've been holding off on upgrading linux due to this issue. I tried again today and looks like this is fixed now? At least for me.

Maybe it was this?
upgraded linux-firmware (20190815.07b925b-1 -> 20190923.417a9c6-1)

Still broken for me, and the 8260 firmware did not update (still at 36.77d01142.0). Also, it doesn't look like the patch from made it into 5.3.2 :( Will probably have to wait until 5.3.3...

The commit was cherry-picked for 5.3.2-arch1 [1]. Please test once the package has moved out of staging.

Fixed in 5.3.4-arch1-1
