since the extensions are not equal, I think there is no point in trying to generalize it in hci_dev. Here we have to do the heavy lifting anyway to make this fly. Then again, lets focus on the msft ones first. Keep it simple. And then we look at how we extend this to other extensions.

>>> __u64 msft_vnd_ext_features;
>>> __u8 msft_vnd_ext_evt_prefix_len;
>>> void *msft_vnd_ext_evt_prefix;
>>> };
>>> And then simply add the struct msft_vnd_ext (and any others) to hci_dev.

You end up having to pick up everything anyway. So I doubt it will make a huge difference. We can always evolve the patches before applying parts of it. Personally I like to get things that look sane and clean applied to we widen the audience of testers.
