Subject: [kernel PATCH v2 1/1] Bluetooth: hci_sync: allow advertise when scan
 without RPA

Address resolution will be paused during active scan to allow any
advertising reports reach the host. If LL privacy is enabled,
advertising will rely on the controller to generate new RPA.

If host is not using RPA, there is no need to stop advertising during
active scan because there is no need to generate RPA in the controller.

Signed-off-by: Zhengping Jiang <>

Changes in v2:
- Modify title to reduce length within limit

Changes in v1:
- Check privacy flag when disable advertising
