Many bluetooth "devices" (I mean the interface from the local machine
to the BT world, not as in remote devices) are connected through a
standard UART. Pictorially, it's:

  CPU <---> UART <---> BT chip <---> Bluetooth RF world

The reporter seems to be saying is that a change to the UART driver now
means that the bluetooth chip wired to that UART no longer functions due
to slightly different initialisation timings of the host UART.

RMK's Patch system:
FTTP is here! 40Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
