[Bala]: Basically every vendor specific command we sent to chip,
chip should respond with an vendor specific event followed by an command
complete event
or some times it will only respond with an command complete event.
but in any case command complete event is mandatory to all the command
we sent to the chip.

In our case, we have an two fw files i.e. *.tlv and *.bin.
tlv is an RAM image of the chip where as bin is an nvm image of the
chip. so tlv will be of
more size which require an lot more time to dump the file in to chip,
while dumping the tlv, we divide tlv as packet of size 245 bytes and
send
them as an command packet to the chip. chip should respond with an
command complete event.
then only we will send the next packet. but size of the tlv is large, to
optimize this we will
not wait for the either an vendor specific event or an command complete
event.
But as we need to be on the sync, i.e. whether are we sending an correct
packets or not,
for the last fw packet we sent to the chip.. chip will to do an CRC
check for the total no of packets received and respond with an vendor
specific event.

We decode the vendor specific event and decide whether the fw download
is success or not. here we send an fw packet as command so stack
expects an command complete event.
where this is missing from the chip. this is expected behavior from
chip.

So currently i am inject an command complete event after receiving an
vendor event for the last packet of the tlv.

This we inject only once for the last command packet sent to the chip.
i don't think this will effect the btmon.
