[bluetooth] Can't pair PIN-requiring audio devices with Ubuntu Touch

Bug Description

I tried pairing several devices with my Ubuntu Touch device. All of them fail:

* Nokia-BH 503 (HFP + A2DP + AVRCP)
* Nokia-BH 905i (HFP + A2DP + AVRCP)
* Latest BMW infotainment system (HFP)

All of those devices are found during inquiry. Trying to pair them causes the PIN entry popup to appear on the phone, however, after confirming that it just sits there and waits forever, never completing the pairing process.

This bug belongs to ubuntu-system-settings; I believe this will require some fixes to the agent to properly handle these devices.

Could you please add debug logs from bluez as well as the log for the ubuntu-system-settings app? (/home/phablet/.cache/upstart/application-legacy-ubuntu-system-settings-.log)

Hi Mathieu, I can add some logs, but given that this is 100% reproducible you're probably better off just watching the log file while trying to pair something yourself. If you're having troubles with reproducing, let me know and I'll do my best to get meaningful logs.

This bug does affect not only audio devices. Pairing request window never displays, other options not offered. More about my keyboard pairing issue: http://askubuntu.com/questions/625533/how-to-pair-external-bluetooth-keyboard-to-ubuntu-touch-bq-phone
