It will be hard to debug this without some logs. Can you perhaps run
with netconsole for a while? Is it possible to trigger this when not in
X to be able to get some information about where issue is?

Below seven iwlwifi patches were added after rc4. If you are unable to
bisect ... perhaps you can run a while by reverting more and more from
this list?
