Subject: Re: [PATCH 0/2] Quirk to enable QCA9377 to discover BLE devices

Hi Joao Paulo,

so can we get a fixed firmware from Qualcomm? Or at least some ROM patches for it?

so we really need to ignore this command complete and not start ahead with the next command. Especially since we really only support one command at a time right now.

We need for this command complete to arrive and only then continue with LE Set Scan Enable. We don’t need a quirk for it. Just add support for dealing with unexpected command complete opcodes. And print a big error if that happens.
