Subject: bluez-firmware: missing support for raspberry pi3 bluetooth
Date: Wed, 24 May 2017 17:08:31 -0700

Package: bluez-firmware
Version: 1.2-3+rpi1
Severity: critical

Dear Maintainer,
this is a migration of:
The bluez-firmware 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:
The necessary patch is in debian/patches, and in the broadcom directory. It is
necessary for the
arm64 and armhf architectures, since the rpi3 can use either image, though raspbian's bluez-firmware is architecture independent. I cannot
guarantee that applying this patch won't break other architectures, so didn't take this farther on my own. The bluez-firmware package I'm reporting against
installed on this
system is raspbian's bluez-firmware from January 2017. So, it isn't what currently exists in devuan.
