You're right in that we have a nice standardized way of informing user
space that the bd address is invalid and a nice standardized way for the
user to specify an address.

What I believe Rob is saying (and what is my problem) is that the user
space tool reading the address from somewhere and calling this API is
not standard - so we end up maintaining some custom
"read-address-and-call-public-address"-tool for both Debian and
OpenEmbedded, plus we need to ensure that all our customers include and
launch this tool in their own systems.

The "new" property is optional and think that for devices that has not
been provisioned with a bd address the boot loader should not add this
property.


Base on the fact that the firmware is built with the assumption that the
host will set the bd address I think the patch should be amended to
specify HCI_QUIRK_INVALID_BDADDR in the absence of this property.
