Bluetooth: Improve USB driver throughput by increasing the frame size
Vikram Kandukuri [Thu, 2 Jul 2009 09:01:59 +0000 (14:01 +0530)]
This patch increases the receive buffer size to HCI_MAX_FRAME_SIZE
which improves the RX throughput considerably.

Tested against BRM/Atheros/CSR USB Dongles with PAN profile using
iperf and chariot. This gave significant (around 40%) increase
in performance (increased from 0.8 to 1.5 Mb/s in Sheld room)
