We made this change to configure the device which supports persistent

Can you say something more about which devices support persistent
storage for the address? Is that all or just some of the chip variants?

Most of the devices support persistent storage, and bd-address storage
is chosen based on the OEM and Target.

Can you be more specific about which devices support it (or say which do

We know below BT chipsets supports persistent storage(OTP) for BDA
WCN7850, WCN6855, WCN6750

Is the address stored in some external eeprom or similar which the OEM
can choose to populate?

This persistent storage is One Time Programmable (OTP) reserved memory
which resides in the BT chip.

So to make device functional in both scenarios we are adding a new
property in dts file to distinguish persistent and non-persistent
support of BD Address and set HCI_QUIRK_USE_BDADDR_PROPERTY bit

Depending on the answer to my questions above, you may be able to infer
this from the compatible string and/or you can read out the address from
the device and only set the quirk if it's set to the default address.

You should not need to add a new property for this.

As per my understanding, altering the compatible string may cause duplicate
configuration, right ?

Yes, we are correct.

If it's the same device and just a different configuration then we can't
use the compatible string for this.

It seems we need a patch like the below to address this. But please
provide some more details (e.g. answers to the questions above) so I can
determine what the end result should look like.

Subject: [PATCH] Bluetooth: btqca: add invalid device address check

Some Qualcomm Bluetooth controllers lack persistent storage for the
device address and therefore end up using the default address

Apparently this depends on how the controller has been integrated so we
can not use the device type alone to determine when the address is

Instead read back the address during setup() and only set the

Thanks for the patch. This change looks fine and it will resolve the current OTP issue.
