Hi Brian, hi all,

We experienced quite some Bluetooth issues after moving from Linux 5.15
to 6.1 on Home Assistant OS, especially on Intel NUC type systems (which
is a popular choice in our community, so it might just be that). When
continuously scanning/listening for BLE packets, the packet flow
suddenly ends. Depending on which and how many devices (possibly also
other factors) within minutes or hours.

Jan (in cc) was able to bisect the issue, and was able to pinpoint the
problem to this change.

Meanwhile I was able to confirm, that reverting this single commit on
the latest 6.1.34 seems to resolve the issue.

I've reviewed the change and surrounding code, and one thing I've
noticed is that the if statement to set cp.filter_dup in
hci_le_set_ext_scan_enable_sync and hci_le_set_scan_enable_sync are
different. Not sure if that needs to be the way it is, but my outside
gut feeling says hci_le_set_ext_scan_enable_sync should use "if (val &&
hci_dev_test_flag(hdev, HCI_MESH))" as well. 

However, that did not fix the problem (but maybe it is wrong
nonetheless?).

Anyone has an idea what could be the problem here?

[TLDR: I'm adding this report to the list of tracked Linux kernel
regressions; the text you find below is based on a few templates
paragraphs you might have encountered already in similar form.
See link in footer if these mails annoy you.]

FWIW & BTW: might be wise to also check if latest mainline still shows
the problem, as explained on this page:

https://linux-regtracking.leemhuis.info/post/frequent-reasons-why-linux-kernel-bug-reports-are-ignored/

Thanks for the report. To be sure the issue doesn't fall through the
cracks unnoticed, I'm adding it to regzbot, the Linux kernel regression
tracking bot:

#regzbot ^introduced 27d54b778ad
#regzbot title net/bluetooth: packet flow suddenly ends when
continuously scanning/listening for BLE packets
#regzbot ignore-activity

This isn't a regression? This issue or a fix for it are already
discussed somewhere else? It was fixed already? You want to clarify when
the regression started to happen? Or point out I got the title or
something else totally wrong? Then just reply and tell me -- ideally
while also telling regzbot about it, as explained by the page listed in
the footer of this mail.

Developers: When fixing the issue, remember to add 'Link:' tags pointing
to the report (the parent of this mail). See page linked in footer for
details.

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)

No HCI command fails, there is also no issue reported in the kernel log.
BlueZ just stops receiving BLE packets, at least from certain devices.

After review the code I concluded the same. What is a bit surprising to
me is that it is so well reproducible. I guess it is nicer to have a
reproducible one than a hard to reproduce one :)

I've taken two btmon captures, I created them using:
btmon -i hci0 -w /config/hcidump-hci-req-working.log

You can find them at:
https://os-builds.home-assistant.io/hcidump-hci-req-working.log
https://os-builds.home-assistant.io/hcidump-hci-sync-non-working.log

This is while running our user space software (Home Assistant with
Bluetooth integration). Besides some BLE devices (e.g. Xioami Mi
Temperature & Humidity sensor) I have a ESP32 running which sends SPAM
advertisements every 100ms (this accelerates the issue). In the
non-working case you'll see that the system doesn't receive any SPAM
advertisements after around 27 seconds. The working log shows that it
continuously receives the same packets (capture 120s).

Hope this helps.

Could you gain any insights from these logs?

Hi, Thorsten here, the Linux kernel's regression tracker. Top-posting
for once, to make this easily accessible to everyone.

Stefan, was this regression ever addressed? Doesn't look like it from
here, but maybe I'm missing something.

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'the Linux kernel's regression tracker' hat)

Hi Thorsten,

No, this hasn't been addressed so far. I am also not sure how we can
help solving that particular issue.

Besides this, we have other Bluetooth issues which seem to be Kernel
regressions (where downgrading to Linux 5.15 also helps), folks see
"hci0: unexpected event for opcode" on Intel but also other systems. We
haven't bisected that issue yet. But it seems that the Bluetooth stack
is really somewhat unstable in recent releases.

Thx and aggh. It's vacation time, so sometimes things take longer, but
that doesn't explain why nothing seems to have happened for 9 weeks now
(at least that how it looks from here, but maybe I missed something).

Luiz, what's up here? What do you need to get down to this?

CCing the other Bluetooth maintainers just to be sure. FWIW, the thread
starts here:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-bluetooth/578e6d7afd676129decafba846a933f5@agner.ch/#t

Jan saw similar problems:

Let's see if this prodding helps to get things rolling. If not, I'll
have to get higher level maintainers involved.

Might be wise to create a separate thread for those and asking the
bluetooth maintainers if they might have an idea (please CC the
regressions lists as well), maybe we are lucky; if not someone has to
bisect this to get closer to a solution.

I suspect the following change shall make it behave as before, the use
of hci_cmd_sync_queue is not equivalent to hci_req_sync:

https://gist.github.com/Vudentz/b78f34e3775c8cd2db55b868e5c8ef42

That said, I'm considering removing the whole custom handling for
HCI_QUIRK_STRICT_DUPLICATE_FILTER and just disable duplicate filtering
when this flag is set.
