[PATCH v3 1/5] dt-bindings: bluetooth: add 'qcom,local-bd-address-broken'

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


Several Qualcomm 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 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 boot firmware has been
providing the address in big-endian order instead.

The only device out there that should be affected by this is the WCN3991
used in some Chromebooks.

Add a 'qcom,local-bd-address-broken' property which can be set on these
platforms to indicate that the boot firmware is using the wrong byte

Note that ChromeOS always updates the kernel and devicetree in lockstep
so that there is no need to handle backwards compatibility with older
