How is this different from  FS#64483 ?
You have not supplied kernel or userspace messages in either bug report.
You can locally build the latest arch kernel with additional patches to test if they resolve the issue for you.

I am running into this issue with my Intel 9260 Wireless chip on kernel version 5.5.1. This is the output:

I figured this would have fixed it, is it not in the Arch version of the kernel? https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/mvm/rxmq.c?id=d829229e35f302fd49c052b5c5906c90ecf9911d

You have opened two bug reports[1][2] and a forum thread[3] on the issue but not supplied requested details.
How do you expect it to be resolved without your cooperation?
