Linus,

There is a new firmware that seems to help the problem. You can get it from
Emmanuel's git clone. As he wrote earlier

==========================

We released an experimental firmware for 3160 / 7260 / 7265.

It is available from my linux-firmware.git clone:

3160:
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/egrumbach/linux-firmware.git/plain/iwlwifi-3160-9.ucode?h=Core6
7260:
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/egrumbach/linux-firmware.git/plain/iwlwifi-7260-9.ucode?h=Core6
7265:
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/egrumbach/linux-firmware.git/plain/iwlwifi-7265-9.ucode?h=Core6

We had an issue with the version number in this stream, so I can't release it
officially, nor can I send a pull request to integrate it to linux-firmware.git.
I am working with the firmware team to fix the version issue.
I still would be glad to have more testing on this firmware, so any feedback
would be greatly appreciated.
It has gone through our regular testing cycles, but "field" feedback is always
valuable.

Thanks in advance to anyone who will test it.

New (temporary) version number: 25.223.9.0

============================================


Larry
