I get that we need something special for having this in the ACL data packets, but for the standard HCI command I prefer that __hci_cmd_sync is used. I addition, it seems that patch download is the only special case and that happens before at the setup stage. So we could make things special for that. I need to understand this a bit better. Can I get a btmon -w trace.log file from the whole init procedure.

just remember that setup() and shutdown() are not symmetric. Tell me if you need to load the firmware every time you do btmgmt power on or if that is kept. Either we add a quirk to always run setup() after open() or we introduce an analogues callback for shutdown().

It is not merged yet. I posted RFC patches to the mailing list.

However if the framing itself is more elaborate actually, then even a brand new driver and just re-using h4_recv.h would be good. If however the extra framing already does a real framing job, then even h4_recv.h is useless and we can just pick the frames right out of serial device. For example bfusb.c had such an extra framing on top of H:4.

Then this sounds like you need a quirk that runs setup() after every open() and not just after the first open(). You would be the first hardware that looses their firmware, but that is fine, I almost expect that at some point someone comes along and requires this. So just create a new HCI_QUIRK_NON_PERSISTENT_SETUP.

So try to put these in shutdown()

And do this in close().

Go with a brand new btmtkuart.c driver. I really sounds you don’t want the hci_ldisc.c framework in your way. You want direct control over the core callbacks.
