For this patch, after speaking with the Bluetooth maintainers, we would
need to:
- add relevant btmon outputs before and after the patch in the commit
- remove the mention of "many devices" (if you've seen other devices
with that problem in the wild, please mention them, otherwise mention
that it's for "XBox One S" controllers, and clones)
- run the patch against the "Profile Tuning Suite Tool" from the
Bluetooth SIG. This requires a Windows laptop, and a piece of hardware
from the Bluetooth SIG, see below.

The first 2 should be pretty easy to do, just send your patch using
"git send-email" to the linux-bluetooth list (CC:ed), with the data

could use to double-check the tests. If not, I should be able to buy
the adapter and run that test suite locally.
