[PATCH] Bluetooth: qca: fix device-address endianness

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


The WCN6855 firmware on the Lenovo ThinkPad X13s expects the Bluetooth
device address in MSB order when setting it using the

Presumably, this is the case for all non-ROME devices which all use the
EDL_WRITE_BD_ADDR_OPCODE command for this (unlike the ROME devices which
use a different command and expect the address in LSB order).

Reverse the little-endian address before setting it to make sure that
the address can be configured using tools like btmgmt or using the
'local-bd-address' devicetree property.

Note that this can potentially break systems with boot firmware which
has started relying on the broken behaviour and is incorrectly passing
the address via devicetree in MSB order.

Hi Qualcomm people,

Could you please verify with your documentation that all non-ROME
devices expect the address provided in the EDL_WRITE_BD_ADDR_OPCODE
command in MSB order?

I assume this is not something that anyone would change between firmware
revisions, but if that turns out to be the case, we'd need to reverse
the address based on firmware revision or similar.
