After looking a bit more at it I realize HCI_OP_NOP is not a good
value in this case:

static void hci_cmd_complete_evt(...)
{
...

if (*opcode != HCI_OP_NOP)
cancel_delayed_work(&hdev->cmd_timer);

...
}

https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v4.19/source/net/bluetooth/hci_event.c#L3351

Cancelling the command timeout is precisely what we want. Not sure why
the patch with HCI_OP_NOP makes the timeouts go away in most cases
(but not e.g. when inserting an msleep(1000) after downloading the
NVM.

I suggest to pass the opcode of the command to be completed.

Some more details:

The timeout error is actually from reading the 'SoC version', which
uses the same command code as the firmware download
(EDL_PATCH_CMD_OPCODE). Without reading the 'SoC version' it would be
from the command to write the first firmware segment.

If the download of a firmware binary takes >= 2s (HCI_CMD_TIMEOUT) the
timeout would still occur. If necessary this could be mitigated by
injecting some command complete events during the firmware download,
though I expect Marcel wouldn't be overly happy with that, since it
would affect btmon even more.

Regards

Matthias
