Bluetooth

The Bluetooth doesn't work with default kernel configuration. Below changes are needed for the bluetooth to function.

Modify existing btusb.c file

root #nano /usr/src/linux/drivers/bluetooth/btusb.c
FILE /usr/src/linux/drivers/bluetooth/btusb.c
Find section "static const struct usb_device_id blacklist_table[] = {"

Add to /* QCA ROME chipset */

{ USB_DEVICE(0x0cf3, 0x3004), .driver_info = BTUSB_QCA_ROME },

Remove from /* Atheros 3012 with sflash firmware */

{ USB_DEVICE(0x0cf3, 0x3004), .driver_info = BTUSB_ATH3012 },

Rebuild the kernel after the change.
