Will do.

The AP6210 is not one device, but 2 separate chips in one module. Each
chip has its own controls and interface. They just so happen to share
the same enclosure. Even 2-in-1 chips by Broadcom have separate controls
and interfaces. The WiFi side is most likely connected via SDIO, while
the Bluetooth side is connected to a UART, and optionally I2S for sound.

I understand where you're coming from. For devices on buses that require
drivers (such as USB, SDIO) these properties probably should be tied to
the device node.

For our use case here, which is a bluetooth chip connected on the UART,
there is no in kernel representation or driver to tie them to. Same goes
for UART based GPS chips. They just so happen to require toggling a GPIO,
and maybe enabling a specific clock, to get it running. Afterwards,
accessing it is done solely from userspace. For our Broadcom chips, the
user has to upload its firmware first, then designate the tty as a Bluetooth
HCI using hciattach.

We are using the rfkill device as a on-off switch.

Hope this explains the situation.
