Bluetooth and 2.6.28

Hi all,

for those interested: I tracked down the bluetooth issue in 2.6.28
based kernels (like eg FSO MS5.1).
For qtextended to work with bluetooth, we need a bluez3 bluetooth
implementation (specific dbus calls done by qtextended limit us here),
so we need to downgrade.
But after the downgrade, hcid is the daemon used and this daemon seems
to crash upon suspend/unsuspend. So after a resume, we need to manually
restart the daemon. No big deal here, but since the daemon died, it
seems qtextended no longer reregisters a bluetooth passkey agent when
we relaunch hcid. As a result no pairings are possible anymore.
So in short: hcid can't die :-)

The version 3.33 dies upon suspend/resume. Maybe 3.36 doesn't, but that
package isn't available somewhere (not for shr, nor for fso). So I can
either use QtMoko, or ask if somebody can provide updated 3.36 packages
of the bluez-3 implementation?
