[PATCH v2 2/4] Bluetooth: add quirk for broken address properties

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Some Bluetooth controllers lack persistent storage for the device
address and instead one can be provided by the boot firmware using the
'local-bd-address' devicetree property.

The Bluetooth devicetree bindings clearly states that the address should
be specified in little-endian order, but due to a long-standing bug in
the Qualcomm driver which reversed the address some bootloaders have
been providing the address in big-endian order instead.

Add a new quirk that can be used to mark deprecated compatible strings
that expect such broken devicetree properties and use it to reverse the
address when parsing the property so that the underlying driver bug can
be fixed.

Fixes: 5c0a1001c8be ("Bluetooth: hci_qca: Add helper to set device address")
