comment Wifi drops and won't reconnect until reboot (14.04 with RTL8723BE)
I got also "invalid argument" issue. Removing /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf didn't help for me. I had to go back to kernel 3.11 and it works. I am done with rtl8723be. I ordered USB Wifi adapter. Shame...

I mean en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel_panic caused by rtlwifi. It was only once so far.

I also have longest run without drops, however yesterday I got one kernel panic caused by rtlwifi module. Please share if you have same problem.

one more thing to try rfkill block bluetooth since this wifi adapter shares antenna with bluetooth. It's not a solution if you need BT, but I don't use it anyway.
