Hey, I am having this same problem with my Think pad T431s. I see that the resolution says that the fix is in the latest kernel, and I have just installed Arch on my computer and have ran pacman -Syu to ensure everything is up to date. I simply cannot get my WiFi drivers to be recognized, even after trying everything in this thread. Are there any other possible solutions out there?
I should be clear, it is fixed in 3.10, not 3.9.X. Which kernel are you using? My solution was to recompile 3.9.X, cherry-picking the commit I linked to in the first post in this thread. That should become unnecessary soon now that 3.10 has been released. Let me know if you need help building a patched 3.9.X.

Since 3.10 is out, when will it be available via pacman? If I can't get 3.10, then I could definitely use some help building 3.9 with the commit added.

That's above my pay grade.

First, the best general instructions to follow are this wiki article.
Then in addition I did (if memory serves), the following things:
Download this patch and save it to a file
Edit the PKGBUILD file for the kernel to add a line to the prepare function applying the patch like
patch -p1 -i /path/to/patch
Then build & install as per the article
Update the bootloader (for me using grub)
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Then on reboot I could choose the custom kernel and it has worked perfectly. I've just been sticking with my patched 3.9.4 for the last few weeks and then I'll upgrade to 3.10 whenever it hits core.

Thank you so much! I can't wait to try this when I get home from work. I'm setting up my first Arch Linux box and hopefully it will be worth sticking with.

This is my first Arch box too and so far I am enjoying both it and the T431s.
