My QtMoko installation lacks lsusb and I cannot install it because my 
FreeRunner does not have Internet access.  However, 
/proc/bus/usb/devices /does/ list the internal Bluetooth chip:

ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle

(I Googled for “0a12:0001” and found a HOWTO [1] from which I copied the 
line of lsusb output for that USB ID.)
