Bug Description

Bluetooth does not work out of the box on a MacbookPro 6,2 (mid 2010 15.3 i5 model). I believe the following needs to be added to the btusb.c in the kernel to get this working.

/* Apple MacBookPro6 BT device */
{ USB_DEVICE(0x05ac, 0x8218) },

Hi Mike,

If you could also please test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
