Thanks for your comment.
Based on your comment, I re-worked the entire driver with reference to following patches:
https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-bluetooth/msg74918.html
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v6.1-rc4/source/drivers/bluetooth/btmtkuart.c

I am able to create a standalone btnxp.ko which is able to run basic BT operations along with FW download with NXP chipsets.

However I have now hit a blocker. The NXP chipsets require support for break signal, by which the host can put the chip into sleep, and wake it up.

However, it seems that the serdev API's in https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v6.1-rc8/source/include/linux/serdev.h do not support break assertion over serial TX line.

Is there any plan for serdev to support break signaling?

Any help on this blocker would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Neeraj
