and that RSSI value is totally different from the one you get via an
inquiry and thus you can't put them together. If you could, I would have
done this inside the kernel.

And no matter what you try, creating an ACL baseband connection is most
expensive operation in Bluetooth. So it takes time and that it takes
even more time if you have to wait for the page timeout if the device is
not in range.
