Our goal is eventually consistent with that aim (not having multiple
users to the socket when using HCI_CHANNEL_USER).

In the interim however, we have existing tooling that expects to be
able to write raw hci to the controller, get responses and not expect
any crashes (Intel Wireless Reporting Tools for example). hcitool is
just an easy test tool here and the real behavior being tested is RAW
channel injections not triggering the cmd timeout.

This gets scheduled in hci_cmd_work. I tried not scheduling
hci_cmd_timeout in the first place but that caused the event stream to
hang (I think because subsequent tx work wasn't being scheduled). I
didn't dive very deep here and fix looked complex for a scenario that
we will migrate away from.
