@ranger: What is your version of this package, is it the latest one? Can you pastebin a build log?

same problem here. doesn't compile with 4.7.5-1, compiles with no problem with linux-lts

make KERNELRELEASE=4.7.5-1-ARCH -C /usr/lib/modules/4.7.5-1-ARCH/build M=/var/lib/
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.7.5-1-ARCH (x86_64)

@tpolgrabia: It builds fine for me on kernel 4.7.5. Try to update your package version.

Doesn't compile within the newest version of linux (build failed) - 4.7.4-1

Too bad I cannot register in the forum right now since it requires a terminal command and I'm not in linux right now. I'll update the wiki though. By the way this bug will be likely resolved in the next update to nm.

@Jujstme - do you have the bug #? I'm not finding it.
The commit that broke this is 767abfa69040c62ae1dc0989a77df8c5e0e489c1
Sorry to keep spamming the wrong packages comments.

Same problem here. Had to downgrade networkmanager to 1.2.5

EDIT: this is a bug in nm that has been fixed upsream a few hours ago.
In the meantime, an alternative solution is to add the following to /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
