is there any chance we can convert BCSP support to run fully inside the kernel with the new parts we have put in. And with that then also use btattach. The split of some parts of BCSP in userspace seems never been a good idea.

I am a bit reluctant to change major hci_ldisc pieces because of just one broken protocol. Running BCSP fully in the kernel seems a better solution to deal with some of these issues.

Regards

Marcel
