nit: why clutter the code flow by putting the log statement in the
middle of code that is actually doing something with the serial
interface?

In case you respin anyway I suggest to structure it like this:

bt_dev_dbg(hu->hdev, "sending power pulse %02x to SoC", cmd);

hci_uart_set_flow_control(hu, true);
serdev_device_write_flush(hu->serdev);
ret = serdev_device_write_buf(hu->serdev, &cmd, sizeof(cmd));

nit: especially on 'embedded' devices 'SoC' is typically associated
with the CPU running Linux, you might want to change it to
'controller'.

I said earlier the delay here should be enough to ensure that the byte
gets transferred from a hardware buffer/FIFO to the controller,
however that didn't take into account that the power pulses are sent
with a baudrate of 2400. That translates to ~240 bytes/s, hence a
delay of 5 ms is needed to be on the safe side.

In case you change the delay please also update the comment to make
clear this is not only time for the BT controller to settle, but also
to guarantee that the command was actually sent to the controller.

So far it seems no problems have been observed, though this could be
thanks to the 100 ms delay in qca_wcn3990_init().

Cheers

Matthias
