[Bala]: these commands are mandatory to turn ON or OFF the chip.
so blocking to the max time is required.
these commands are sent during the BT chip ON & OFF.
in the latest series, i have flushed the uart before sending
this commands
so the uart FIFO(as just opened the port before calling this
function) or the circular
buffer will be empty and also i am disabling the flow control
too.

[Bala]: Pls refer the latest patch series
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10744435/
where i am flushing the circular buffer before calling the
qca_send_power_pulse().
this how the flow

1. open serial port (gurantess that UART FIFO is empty)
2. flush the circular buffer
3. disable the flow control.
4. send the command byte.
5. wait for the circular buffer is empty.

the above is one time process,
