Linux kernel 5.6.0 iwlwifi bug

Quick note that the Linux kernel 5.6.0 has an iwlwifi bug that will prevent network connectivity. [1]

A patch is out but did not make 5.6.0. This patch IS included in gentoo-sources-5.6.0. It will be in a future vanilla-sources 5.6.X once upstream releases a new version.
