I will try to incorporate the patch you are referring to and if it's working I will try to create a suggestion for an updated PKGBUILD.

For the CPU issue, I noticed the same behavior while analyzing powertop today. One CPU core is continuously on a high frequency.

htop shows 1 core at 100% CPU usage and indeed, if I turn of the wifi, the load drops to almost 0%.

Hi there.
The issues with logs is easily fixed with the removal of 4 lines (otherwise, for each packet, few lines are written with printk) and the linked fix you attached should do the trick.
What bothers me more is the one core of my netbook that is 100% used from the moment I connect to a network to the moment I disconnect.
I saw this issue on two different computers already and I wondered if any of you had it. The faulty processus if ksoftirqd, so I don't know what this driver send so often so this processus is using so much proc but I'd like to find because it's really annoying me :-/.

On my system this driver works well, however it generates 30 syslog messages per second, making my syslog virtually unusable.

The issue is similar to this one
https://github.com/neurobin/MT7630E/issues/2

Does anybody know a simple way to stop the flooding of the syslog / dmesg?

I tried a new better and cleaner way... It may not work (sorry no way to test). The module was renamed to rt7630pci and this module should be loaded automatically at boot

@Atsuri Did you enable/started the dkms service ? After updating to the latest kernel version and after reboot, the following command should not return anything :
ls /usr/lib/modules/*/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/

Atsuri commented on 2015-06-02 19:52

Kernel modules do not work under the most recent kernel (4.0.4-2-ARCH). dmesg shows no error messages upon forced loading with modprobe. Downgrading to 4.0.1-1-ARCH restores functionality.

@Atsuri
The problem got solved after 1-5 update :D

@ mvci
You must be missing something then. DKMS? Linux-headers for the most recent kernel? Complete base-devel setup for AUR package compilation?

I can confirm that not only does the compilation conclude successfully, but also the module works with my S301LA Asus Vivobook Mediatek 7630e PCI adapter.

Thank you very much for this package! :)

It doesn't work with linux 4.0

here is what I get:
