Subject: Re: [PATCH v4] Bluetooth: hci_qca: wcn3990: Drop baudrate change
 vendor event

Hi Matthias,

> Firmware download to the WCN3990 often fails with a 'TLV response size
> mismatch' error:
> [  133.064659] Bluetooth: hci0: setting up wcn3990
> [  133.489150] Bluetooth: hci0: QCA controller version 0x02140201
> [  133.495245] Bluetooth: hci0: QCA Downloading qca/crbtfw21.tlv
> [  133.507214] Bluetooth: hci0: QCA TLV response size mismatch
> [  133.513265] Bluetooth: hci0: QCA Failed to download patch (-84)
> This is caused by a vendor event that corresponds to an earlier command
> to change the baudrate. The event is not processed in the context of the
> baudrate change and is later interpreted as response to the firmware
> download command (which is also a vendor command), but the driver detects
> that the event doesn't have the expected amount of associated data.
> More details:
> For the WCN3990 the vendor command for a baudrate change isn't sent as
> synchronous HCI command, because the controller sends the corresponding
> vendor event with the new baudrate. The event is received and decoded
> after the baudrate change of the host port.
> Identify the 'unused' event when it is received and don't add it to
> the queue of RX frames.

>  Harish Bandi <> reported frame reassembly

> Changes in v3:
> - rebased on latest bluetooth-next/master
> - removed barrier calls again, bit routines include barriers
> Changes in v2:
> - make QCA_DROP_VENDOR_EVENT an enum value and don't use BIT()
> - free skb in qca_recv_event()
> - add barriers to ensure qca_recv_event() sees updated flags
> - return -ETIMEDOUT instead of -EPROTO if the vendor event isn't
>  received in time
