> that is indeed confusing. Something went wrong with that tool. Just keep in mind that tool is just for internal testing by the developers. Someone would still need to write a proper integration with listening for the appropriate events and dig out the actual address from the memory location.

You have patch that helps that issues in the email :-).

It looks like that's the exact issue. It seems to me like set_bdaddr
is actually called while the device is "down".

Ok, so kernel currently wants bluetooth out of reset at

Actually, firmware loading is _not_ the biggest problem. That is
pretty self-contained now.

I guess I should just configure it at probe time, put it into reset
during rmmod, keep it out of reset otherwise, and see how it works.
