HCI events can also be received from the host controller. They will be handled
and a translation will be forwarded to NFC Core as needed.
HCI uses 2 execution contexts:
- one if for executing commands : nfc_hci_msg_tx_work(). Only one command

can be executing at any given moment.

- data_exchange() must be implemented by the driver if proprietary HCI commands
are required to send data to the tag. Some tag types will require custom
commands, others can be written to using the standard HCI commands. The driver
can check the tag type and either do proprietary processing, or return 1 to ask
for standard processing.

HCI Responses are dispatched immediately from this context to unblock

callback that was provided by nfc_hci_msg_tx_work() when it sent the command.
The completion callback will then wake the syscall context.
