Thanks for your analysis.

It is unfortunate (though not unexpected) that this is a problem in
the ROM were we can't fix it, but at least the FW team is aware of it
and fixed it for future hardware.

I don't see command timeouts when injecting a command complete event
after reading the SoC version. I suspect you still use patch which
injects a command complete event with HCI_OP_NOP, which is precisely
what the chip does ...

I agree that HCI_RESET cancels the command timeout timer if it is sent
before the 2s timout expires, but I have doubts on the part about
command complete events.

In my observations there are no command timeouts if a command complete
(with opcode != HCI_OP_NOP) is injected after the firmware download,
even if a 3s sleep is added before sending the HCI_RESET.

Where do you intend to handle it then? Ideally it would be fixed in
the ROM FW, but that doesn't seem a viable option.
