Yes, a v2 is planned, but I'm super busy at the moment. I don't
expect to send something for this merge window. Neither LogicPD
nor IGEP use FM radio, so I can just remove FM support from the
TI_ST framework. Converting those platforms to hci_ll can be done
in a different patchset.

If that was the only issue there would be a v2 already. But Marcel
Holtmann suggested to pass the custom packet data through the BT
subsystem, which is non-trivial (at least for me) :)
