This is actually about a different series, but I assume the same
applies for both series.

My remark here was not about the btusb 0000:0000 USB ids handling +
ACPI PNP ids, but about fixing hci_ldisc.c now depending on

So since you now have accepted Arnd patch making hci_ldisc.c now
depending on serdev more or less official (which I'm fine with),
can I assume that this is going to be the final (for now / for 4.15)
state of the deps situation surrounding hci_ldisc.c ?

The reason I'm asking this is because my plan was to undo the
changes introducing the hci_ldisc.c dependency on serdev and
instead adding a host_set_flow_control helper to hci_bcm.c,
so have hci_bcm.c directly call the serdev flowcontrol funcs
instead of having it depend on hci_ldisc.c for this in the
same way as it is already directly calling

If we are going to let hci_ldisc.c deal with tty vs serdev
backed devices for flowcontrol, it makes sense to do the
same for baudrate and make it save to call hci_uart_set_baudrate
on a serdev backed hci_uart and drop the host_set_baudrate
helper from hci_bcm.c. I can write and test a patch for this ...

Either way let me know how you want to proceed. I will let
this rest until I hear back from you.
