That was my initial expectation as well -- maybe you can show the
problem to some Qualcomm contacts?

Agreed.

Makes sense, I'm sending an updated version ignoring unexpected CC
events on all hardware. Looking at the code it seems the only
exception is a CC event for HCI_OP_RESET on some CSR controllers,
which is handled in hci_req_cmd_complete, so I'm letting that flow
through.
