Hi Marcel,

First of all thanks for your review.

I don't know if there is some way to identify the availability
based on some HCI vendor command. The public documentation from
the WiLink chips is pretty bad.

Ok.

That should be possible. I will change this before sending another
revision.

Yes, obviously both paths should follow the same logic.

That header is already being used by the hci_ll driver (before this
patch) for some packet structures. I removed all WiLink specific
things in the patch removing the TI WiLink driver and kept it
otherwise.

Was this question directed to me? I trust your decision how this
should be implemented. I'm missing the big picture from other BT
devices ;)

If I understood you correctly the suggestion is, that the TI BT
driver uses hci_recv_frame() for packet type 0x08 (LL_RECV_FM_RADIO).
Then the FM driver can call hci_vnd_chan_add() in its probe function
and hci_vnd_chan_del() in its remove function to register the receive
hook? Also the dump_tx_skb_data()/dump_rx_skb_data() could be
removed, since btmon can be used to see the packets? Sounds very
nice to me.

AFAIK there is no public documentation for the TI WiLink chips. At
least my only information source are the existing drivers. The
driver protocol can be seen in drivers/media/radio/wl128x/fmdrv_common.h:

struct fm_cmd_msg_hdr {
__u8 hdr; /* Logical Channel-8 */
__u8 len; /* Number of bytes follows */
__u8 op; /* FM Opcode */
__u8 rd_wr; /* Read/Write command */
__u8 dlen; /* Length of payload */
} __attribute__ ((packed));

struct fm_event_msg_hdr {
__u8 header; /* Logical Channel-8 */
__u8 len; /* Number of bytes follows */
__u8 status; /* Event status */
__u8 num_fm_hci_cmds; /* Number of pkts the host allowed to send */
__u8 op; /* FM Opcode */
__u8 rd_wr; /* Read/Write command */
__u8 dlen; /* Length of payload */
} __attribute__ ((packed));

Apart from the Bluetooth and FM part, the chips also support GPS
(packet type 0x9). The GPS feature is not used on Droid 4 stock
rom and seems to carry some TI specific protocol instead of NMEA.
Here is an old submission for this driver:
http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1005.0/00918.html

(I don't plan to work on the GPS part, but it provides some more
details about the WiLink chips protocol)
