Bug Description

At least on touch devices BlueZ reports a quoted hostname like "Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition" which is then send over to other devices including the quotes.

bluetoothd[6402]: plugins/adaptername.c:set_pretty_name() Setting name '"Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition"' for device 'hci0'
bluetoothd[6402]: plugins/mgmtops.c:mgmt_set_name() index 0, name "Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition"

BlueZ reads the hostname from /etc/machine-info on startup which has the following set

PRETTY_HOSTNAME="Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition"

Code in BlueZ needs to be changed to ignore the quotes from the value.

  * debian/patches/unquote-hostname.patch:
    - As hostname is quoted in /etc/machine-info we have to unquote it before
      starting to use it or all remote device will see the quotes in our name.
