Free to take decision..

I understand this feature is creating instability in other area. However -
1. the  problem will remain same when enable the usb-wakeup feature form
kernel or user-space or udev rule, and as long LE device is connected.
2. Even the behavior is same in existing stable code, when connect the
Bluetooth BR/EDR mouse (io device), as It will enable the usb-wakeup feature/flag,
