[Linux-kernel-mentees] [PATCH] Bluetooth: fix "list_add double add" in hci_conn_complete_evt

When two HCI_EV_CONN_COMPLETE event packets with status=0 of the same
HCI connection are received, device_add would be called twice which
leads to kobject_add being called twice. Thus duplicate
(struct hci_conn *conn)->dev.kobj.entry would be inserted into
(struct hci_conn *conn)->dev.kobj.kset->list.

This issue can be fixed by checking (struct hci_conn *conn)->debugfs.
If it's not NULL, it means the HCI connection has been completed and we
won't duplicate the work as for processing the first
