SubjectRe: [PATCH] Bluetooth: btqca: Add a short delay before downloading the NVM
Hi Matthias,

> On WCN3990 downloading the NVM sometimes fails with a "TLV response
> size mismatch" error:
> [ 174.949955] Bluetooth: btqca.c:qca_download_firmware() hci0: QCA Downloading qca/crnv21.bin
> [ 174.958718] Bluetooth: btqca.c:qca_tlv_send_segment() hci0: QCA TLV response size mismatch
> It seems the controller needs a short time after downloading the
> firmware before it is ready for the NVM. A delay as short as 1 ms
> seems sufficient, make it 10 ms just in case. No event is received
> during the delay, hence we don't just silently drop an extra event.
