I think I am the author the patch [1] mentioned by Marcel. I have to
admit, it's quite
clunky in it's current form.
So yes, the new API you proposed is definitely better to solve the
issue. I'll send
new patch for btusb once we have the new API to use.

Also, with patch [1], the "firmware request while host is not
available" may still get hit
on some corner cases. I proposed another patch [2] to tackle the edge
case, can you
take a look?
