Yes, it is the horrible Bluetooth muxing over serial that is broken. It
has been broken for two merge windows, because nobody seemed to care
until I started looking into it and tried to figure out how to get it to
work. :)

The implementation is really weak and there are loads of things I want
to start fixing/cleaning up. This patch was just my intention to start
with a relatively clean table (ie. horrible or not, at least working).

I totally agree, I'll start looking into that next.

But this patch is pretty small and simple, so why not include it to at
least fix the breakage in 3.7 and 3.8? Whether you take it or not now
won't make any difference in the 5k LOC in these kernel versions.
