Vitaly, Gustavo,

I suppose I never understood HCI_RUNNING flag that way, as in an error
check mechanism to avoid multiple hci0 ups.

What I understood was that HCI_RUNNING suggested as to when hci0 was
ready to be used. With this understanding, I wanted to make sure I
downloaded the firmware for the chip before I proclaim to the world
that the hci0 is ready to be used, as in HCI_RUNNING.

For example, I didn't want my _send_frame to be called before I did
the firmware download - since firmware download takes time - 45kb
send/wait commands :(

But I suppose I now understand - What I would rather do is test_bit in
the beginning of function and do a set_bit at the end of function -
does this make sense ?
