Turns out Hans de Goede completed the work I started last year trying to
improve Chinese-clone detection of CSR controller chips. Quirk after quirk
these Bluetooth dongles are more usable now.

Even after a few BlueZ regressions; these clones are so fickle that some
days they stop working altogether. Except on Windows, they work fine.


But this force-suspend initialization quirk seems to mostly do the trick,
after a lot of testing Bluetooth now seems to work *all* the time.

The only problem is that the solution ended up being masked under a very
stringent check; when there are probably hundreds of fake dongle
models out there that benefit from a good reset. Make it so.


Fixes: 81cac64ba258a ("Bluetooth: Deal with USB devices that are faking CSR vendor")
Fixes: cde1a8a992875 ("Bluetooth: btusb: Fix and detect most of the Chinese Bluetooth controllers")
Fixes: d74e0ae7e0303 ("Bluetooth: btusb: Fix detection of some fake CSR controllers with a bcdDevice val of 0x0134")
Fixes: 0671c0662383e ("Bluetooth: btusb: Add workaround for remote-wakeup issues with Barrot 8041a02 fake CSR controllers")

I've changed the warning line to make it easy to grep and detect if this updated
workaround is part of the driver. Should make it much more obvious to users in
case their dongle doesn't work for other reasons. There's a clear then-now.

Easy to narrow other future issues down. Let me know what you think.
