Bug Description

(1) Find the BT usb device id.

$> usb-devices > usb-devices.txt
 Search for an entry for Broadcom. For example

T: Bus=01 Lev=02 Prnt=02 Port=03 Cnt=03 Dev#= 5 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=01 Prot=01 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=0a5c ProdID=21f3 Rev=01.12
S: Manufacturer=Broadcom Corp
S: Product=BCM20702A0
S: SerialNumber=74DE2B344A7B
C: #Ifs= 4 Cfg#= 1 Atr=e0 MxPwr=0mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=01 Prot=01 Driver=(none)
I: If#= 1 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=01 Prot=01 Driver=(none)
I: If#= 2 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
I: If#= 3 Alt= 0 #EPs= 0 Cls=fe(app. ) Sub=01 Prot=01 Driver=(none)

The device id is "0a5c 21f3"

(2) Update the BT driver with the appropriate device id:

$> sudo modprobe btusb
$> sudo echo "0a5c 21f3" >> /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id

(3) Confirm that the BT stack now sees the device:

$> hciconfig
hci0: Type: BR/EDR Bus: USB
 BD Address: 74:DE:2B:34:4A:7B ACL MTU: 1021:8 SCO MTU: 64:1
 UP RUNNING PSCAN
 RX bytes:1059 acl:0 sco:0 events:34 errors:0
 TX bytes:886 acl:0 sco:0 commands:34 errors:0

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel for Oneiric in -proposed (3.0.0-16.29) solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-oneiric' to 'verification-done-oneiric'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
