SubjectRe: [PATCH] Bluetooth: btusb: Restore QCA Rome suspend/resume fix with a "rewritten" version
Sorry for being a bit slow to respond to this.

I'm the original author of commit:

> bluetooth controllers stop functioning upon resume from suspend."

>2 platforms I think.

This issue might very well be limited to just a few platforms.
Here's a link to the original bug report I submitted.

There was a number of people who reported they were having similar
issues with various QCA Rome bluetooth devices.
The userspace fix that seemed to work for everyone was resetting the usb device.


echo 0 > /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-4/authorized
echo 1 > /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-4/authorized


from usb.core import find as finddev
dev = finddev(idVendor=0x0cf3, idProduct=0xe300)

It's difficult to ascertain what the underlying issue was for each
person (and associated device) who commented. I can only speak
authoritatively for my own device.
It's a Samsung ATIV Book 9 12.2 (2015) laptop that contains an
integrated bluetooth controller that's attached to the internal usb

# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0cf3:e300 Atheros Communications, Inc.

After suspending the laptop for an extended length of time (sometimes
it would take an hour or two before issue occurred), and resuming
--the bluetooth controller would not come back on-line. After reading
through various forums, I suspected the issue I was experiencing was
due to the bluetooth device losing it's firmware during suspend.
The original patch I created did fix the issue. (I do realize that
targeting all QCA Rome chipset's was the wrong decision). Hans de
Goede's rewritten version (commit: 61f5acea8737) also worked for my
device. Since, some people think that the underlying issue may been
fixed elsewhere in the kernel. I'm going to remove Hans' commit and
see if the issue persists (with kernel 4.15.6). I'll report back
tomorrow with the results.
