IMO, it is not necessary to add extra verification since only
bluetoothd changes this file.
It will be an unnecessary overhead.

As you mentioned in the reply for "v2 1/2" of this patch series, LE
was enabled by default recently, and there isn't releases supporting
officially LE. Keep the compatibility with the old format will not
give a valuable benefit.
We will fix the other issues that you pointed, and send the patch series again.
