An upload of linux-firmware to xenial-proposed has been rejected from the upload queue for the following reason: "It seems the debian/changelog has the wrong bug attached - LP: #174363 seems like a very old bug for a completely different package. Apparently a digit got lost somewhere. Please fix the changelog entry and re-upload.".

Sigh, I told Hui Wang when he sent the patch that he needed to add the SRU justification, seems he never did it. I'll copy it over from the patch cover letter, only because we really need to get this update moving for bug 1743638.

On elementary OS Loki, adding xenial-proposed and upgrading resulted in a functional bluetooth device. The upgrade did, however, upgrade a lot of packages so I just have to assume the fix is was added from this bug. All that said, it's nice to have bluetooth working. Thank you for all that you do!
