aaah there it is! grrr. still in the s3c2440 dir. just ... is... so... device..
specific! my engineering bones insist on finding a more generic way - like a
generic kerel "hey - all bluetooth devices go here" thing.... no matter what
baseboard it is or how they are wired up - the class of device has controls

AHA! the good 'ol e0!

AHA!!! SCORE! just what i wanted.

yup. that's what i hoped - s with gta04 it will just work with no changes - it
will find any bt device we have and "just work". i hate re-doing work. :)
perfrect. i now have my bt device up - a 1-1 is there. i can now scan subdirs
and look at bInterfaceClass and be happy. werd up to my homies. :)
