I forgot to mention this earlier: the controller doesn't send a
command complete event for the command, or at least not a correct
That's the data that is received:
04 0e 04 01 00 00 00
This is *a* command complete event, but the opcode is 0x0000 instead
of the earlier command. The same happens for the firmware
download/read version command, which is the reason why the command
complete injection mess
(https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/1027955/) is needed in one
way or another.
I wished Qualcomm FW developers would get their act together and:
- send actual command complete events
- acknowledge a baudrate change request using the current baudrate
like Broadcom and Intel chips apparently do
this would have saved countless hours of debugging and implementing
quirky workarounds ...
Maybe there is hope for future chips (hint, hint)?
