I have tried this patch (both v2 and v3) to connect with a Bluetooth
2.0 device, it doesn't have any connection problem.
I suppose because in the original patch (d5bb334a8e17), there is no
check for the HCI_CONN_ENCRYPT flag.

Actually no, I haven't heard of KNOB vulnerability before.
This patch is written for qualification purposes, specifically to pass
GAP/SEC/SEM/BI-05-C to BI-08-C.
However, it sounds like it could also prevent some KNOB vulnerability
as a bonus.
