Only one thing needs to be corrected in v9. that is __be16 is required instead of dlen1 + dlen2. I will fix it up in v10 and the other changes all look good to me.

hopefully v10 also can be merged :)

I will investigate more about how to add ->set_bdaddr, ->set_diag and STP receive enhancement in later patches.

but so far I have not much idea about how to make STP multiplexer be a independent driver.

my thought is that it would be really better and cleaner a chain of serdev is be used as the base of mtkbtuart. something like

8250 serial bus <----> STP multiplexer serdev <----> mtkbtuart serdev

however, STP multiplexer serdev is not a real device, that doesn't no request any resource. I think it should not be allowed to be added in a device tree and even in dt-binding document.

I will consider more WMT event status when I add more Bluetooth devices such as MT7668U usb based Bluetooth which I plan to add the support in later patches in the next weeks
