SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] Bluetooth: btqcomsmd: BD address setup

Hi Rob,

for Bluetooth that is not true. We have Set Public Address command that is uniquely handling this and the HCI_QUIRK_INVALID_BDADDR address does the right magic to allow userspace to identify a missing address. It is done nicely and correctly and works fine.

Mind you this is even used when there actually is a BD_ADDR, but the device manufacturer wants to have one from its own OUI range compared to the chip manufacturer’s OUI range.

If DT is really the only place for the BD_ADDR and the bootloader kinda does add / merge it into the DT, then by all means that is fine. However if it is not, then this feature is dangerous since it can lead to multiple devices with the same address. I rather have these devices leave the kernel in unconfigured mode. And then force a userspace tool to use Set Public Address to bring it into configured mode.

Regards

Marcel
