I want to apply this quirk to as little devices as possible. It is one of these quirks we have to hardcode per USB VID:PID since we can’t auto-detect which boot loader is faulty.
So before I blacklist them, we better get a good understand of which they are. Can you include a btmon trace for that part. You most likely have to blacklist btusb.ko, start btmon and then load btusb.ko manually. One with and one without the quirk. And add that to the commit message.
We then try to find that module internally. It must be some SKU that we didn’t have in our test rack.
