Subject: [RFC Bluez PATCH 0/3] adapter: Reconnect audio when resuming from suspend
Date: Tue, 28 Jul 2020 18:55:37 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Luiz and Marcel,

This is a quality of life improvement for the behavior of audio devices
during system suspend. This depends on a kernel change that emits
suspend/resume events:

Right now, audio devices will be disconnected as part of suspend but
won't be reconnected when the system resumes without user interaction.
This is annoying to some users as it causes an interruption to their
normal work flow.

This change reconnects audio devices that were disconnected for suspend
using the following logic:

 * In the Device Disconnected management event, if the disconnect reason
   was 0x5 (Disconnected by Local Host for Suspend) and the device is an
   audio sink (implements major services Audio + Rendering), then it is
   queued for reconnect.
 * When the Controller Resumed management event is seen, we check if
   an audio device needs to be reconnected. If yes, we queue a delayed
   callback to do the reconnection. The delay is 5s by default and is
   meant to allow sufficient time for any Wi-Fi activity that may occur
   during resume (since Bluetooth connect may adversely affect that).

A reconnect is only attempted once after the controller resumes and the
delay between resume and reconnect is configurable via the
ReconnectAudioDelay key in the General settings. The 5s delay was chosen
arbitrarily and I think anywhere up to 10s is probably ok. A longer
delay is better to account for spurious wakeups and Wi-Fi reconnection
time (avoiding any co-ex issues) at the downside of reconnection speed.

Here are the tests I have done with this:
- Single suspend and verified the headphones reconnect
- Suspend stress test for 25 iterations and verify both Wi-Fi and
  Bluetooth audio reconnect on resume. (Ran with wake minimum time of
- Suspend test with wake time < 5s to verify that BT reconnect isn't
  attempted. Ran 5 iterations with low wake time and then let it stay
  awake to confirm reconnect finally completed after 5s+ wake time.
- Suspend test with wake time between 3s - 6s. Ran with 5 iterations and
  verified it wasn't connected at the end. A connection attempt was
  made but not completed due to suspend. A reconnect attempt was not
  made afterwards, which is by design.

  Luiz@ Marcel@: Does this sound ok (give up after an attempt)?

I've tested this on a Pixelbook Go (AC-9260 controller) and HP
Chromebook 14a (RTL8822CE controller) with GID6B headset. I'm hoping to
test this with a few more headsets to make sure this is ok and I'm
looking for some early feedback.
