I wouldn't suggest to cover scanning, inquiry, etc. Scanning, for
example, Host sends a scan command to Bluetooth module (in an
asynchronous way). After a given interval, Host receives inquiry
results. Over this period, at host side, we don't know what kind of
radio activity is happening in BT module side.

Let's say this patch provide LED indicators to only data packets
activity (ACL and SCO). Can we?
