I have it working now on the 5.3.y branch, but I had to do 4 things.

1) Disable the older OMAP serial driver
2) Apply [1] patch
3) Disable 8250 DMA support
4) Remove checks for !up->gpios in the 8250-omap.c code.

With all those changes, I am able to successfully and repeatedly scan
and l2ping Bluetooth devices. Without any one of those, I get frame
errors or lost packets.

I wonder if we can dump the legacy omap serial driver once the 8250
driver is working better. That would eliminate at least one of the 4.
I am not sure what's up with the DMA, and I've already stated some
thoughts on item 4 in a previous e-mail.

I think the [1] patch is probably going to help fix some other issues
and should probably be backported, but by itself it isn't enough to
fix the Bluetooth problem on the OMAP3630.
