Hi, Marcel

+ if (hci_skb_pkt_type(skb) == HCI_ACLDATA_PKT ||
+ hci_skb_pkt_type(skb) == HCI_SCODATA_PKT)
+ hci_leds_blink_oneshot(hdev->rx_led);
+

By adding pkt_type checks, we can limit LED blinks only at ACL/SCO
DATA_PKT. Similar checks can be added for tx_led too.

Does this look good to you? If you agree, I can send v2 to include this change.

Radio is controlled in Bluetooth module side, not Host. So I'm afraid
actual radio activity cannot be captured in its exact form in Host
side. The purpose of this patch is not for radio, it is for
incoming/outgoing data. For example, it can give user a blinking
indicator on RX frames after a Bluetooth mouse is connected. Another
example, it can blink at bluetooth streamed audio (TX).

Would that make sense?
