Subject[PATCH v3 4/7] Bluetooth: hci_event: Ignore reserved bits in LE Extended Adv Report
Broadcom controllers present on Apple Silicon devices use the upper
8 bits of the event type in the LE Extended Advertising Report for
the channel on which the frame has been received.
These bits are reserved according to the Bluetooth spec anyway such that
we can just drop them to ensure that the advertising results are parsed

The following excerpt from a btmon trace shows a report received on
channel 37 by these controllers:

> HCI Event: LE Meta Event (0x3e) plen 55
LE Extended Advertising Report (0x0d)
Num reports: 1
Entry 0
Event type: 0x2513
Props: 0x0013
Use legacy advertising PDUs
Data status: Complete
Reserved (0x2500)
Legacy PDU Type: Reserved (0x2513)
Address type: Public (0x00)

changes from v2:
- removed quirk and apply mask unconditionally since only bit 0-6
are used according to the spec
changes from v1:
- adjusted the commit message a bit to make checkpatch happy
