Subject: Re: [PATCH v7 0/5] Bluetooth: Add new MGMT interface for advertising

Hi Daniel,

> This patch series defines the new two-call MGMT interface for adding
> new advertising instances. Similarly to the hci advertising commands, a
> mgmt call to set parameters is expected to be first, followed by a mgmt
> call to set advertising data/scan response. The members of the
> parameters request are optional; the caller defines a "params" bitfield
> in the structure that indicates which parameters were intentionally set,
> and others are set to defaults.
> The main feature here is the introduction of min/max parameters and tx
> power that can be requested by the client. Min/max parameters will be
> used both with and without extended advertising support, and tx power
> will be used with extended advertising support. After a call to set
> advertising parameters, the selected transmission power will be
> propagated in the reponse to alert userspace to the actual power used.
> Additionally, to inform userspace of the controller LE Tx power
> capabilities for the client's benefit, this series also changes the
> security info MGMT command to more flexibly contain other capabilities,
> such as LE min and max tx power.
> All changes have been tested on hatch (extended advertising) and kukui
> (no extended advertising) chromebooks with manual testing verifying
> correctness of parameters/data in btmon traces, and our automated test
> suite of 25 single- and multi-advertising usage scenarios.
> A separate patch series will add support in bluetoothd. Thanks in
> advance for your feedback!

> Changes in v7:
> - Rebase onto bluetooth-next/master
> Changes in v6:
> - Only populate LE tx power range if controller reports it
> Changes in v5:
> - Ensure data/scan rsp length is returned for non-ext adv
> Changes in v4:
> - Add remaining data and scan response length to MGMT params response
> - Moving optional params into 'flags' field of MGMT command
> - Combine LE tx range into a single EIR field for MGMT capabilities cmd
> Changes in v3:
> - Adding selected tx power to adv params mgmt response, removing event
> - Re-using security info MGMT command to carry controller capabilities
> Changes in v2:
> - Fixed sparse error in Capabilities MGMT command
> Daniel Winkler (5):
>  Bluetooth: Add helper to set adv data
>  Bluetooth: Break add adv into two mgmt commands
>  Bluetooth: Use intervals and tx power from mgmt cmds
>  Bluetooth: Query LE tx power on startup
>  Bluetooth: Change MGMT security info CMD to be more generic
