Package: bluez
Version: 5.23-2
Severity: critical

Dear Maintainer,
this is a migration of:
<https://git.devuan.org/sdk/arm-sdk/issues/14>
The bluez package in devuan is missing raspbian's patches necessary to use the built-in bluetooth adapter on the raspberry pi3 (rpi3). The patches are a part of raspbian's source:
<http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/pool/main/b/bluez/>
The necessary patches are in debian/patches 0050-0053. They are necessary for the arm64 and armhf architectures, since the rpi3 can use either image. I cannot guarantee that applying them won't break other architectures, so didn't take this farther on my own. The bluez package I'm reporting against installed on this system is devuan's bluez from January 2017 with the necessary patches from raspbian applied. So, it isn't what currently exists in devuan.

It will also be necessary to write an init script to run hciattach, since raspbian's package has a script to do this for systemd only.
