    I don't know what Felix thinkgs, but to me using DMI sounds like a good
    idea to try, assuming the matches are unique enough and there's no risk
    of enabling bt coex on wrong platforms. Should the PCI bus number etc
    checked as well in case the user adds more ath9k devices to the
    platform?

    But of course I need to see the patch to comment more.
