let me start with a clear answer here. This is insane and will never be merged upstream.

I have no idea on how describe this any other way, but this is really bad idea, totally bloated and causing side affects left and right. The HCI raw socket is not for doing profiling. Especially not inside the kernel. And just thinking that someone took the old hcidump code and hacked it to run as a kernel module is something I never expected to happen.

I think that everything should start with what these two vendor commands are actually doing. So a simple descriptions of these two vendor commands is what is needed first.

And then someone needs to tell me what all this code does that SO_PRIORITY is not already doing and has been doing for a long time.

Regards

Marcel
