Subject: [PATCH] Bluetooth: btusb: Add a module parameter ignore_id for debugging
Date: Sun,  2 Aug 2020 12:21:38 +0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

There is always an on-board usb bluetooth hci on the laptops, if
the bluetooth function doesn't work well like a bt headset can't work
with HSP/HFP mode, we often plug an external usb BT hci to verify if
that headset could work with the exteral BT hci or not, in this
situation, there will be 2 hcis (hci0 and hci1) in the system, and
so far, the gnome can't handle the hci1 well so we met lots of
problems when debugging with hci1 under gnome.

After adding this new module parameter, we could ban the on-board
usb hci by putting btusb.ignore_id=idVendor,idProduct to the bootargs,
then the external usb hci will be hci0 and there is only one hci
in the system. We could easily debug with the external usb bluetooth
hci after this change.
