Hi everyone. I’m coming from an Arch install on my laptop (ASUS FX505DY), everything was smooth sailing until I installed the dkms drivers for the wifi+bluetooth card (realtek rtl8821ce) and rebooted, since then everytime I open any program window, or other things like using the yakuake pulldown or even expanding the system tray or checking other windows’ tooltips freezes the whole UI for a while (up to 15 seconds when opening ffox, for example), except for the mouse pointer which still moves.
Video of the freezes
Problem stays after reboots, but goes away if I uninstall the driver. Goes without saying that it comes back if I install it again.
The driver itself works fine, I’m posting this using it.
I’m at an absolute loss at this, if anyone can point me at what should I look into would be nice.
The dkms install didn’t show anything weird.

My fpaste output
Happens on kernels 5.5.5 and 5.5.6
If any other info is needed please say so.
It also stops freezing if I turn off wireless/activate plane mode.
