Here’s the dmesg | grep Bluetooth:

I’ll file a Bugzilla if we need full dmesg as attachment.

And this is a massive hammer trying to squash everything. This problem needs to be debugged. And this starts by providing affected SKU information and firmware information. So get the details about the SKU and its Bluetooth and WiFi boot loaders.

Apology for the hammer approach, which is the best way I can think of. Of course it’s much better if we can solve this without the ugly hack.
