The driver is already in staging, this is the request to move it out of
staging and into the "correct" place in the tree.  The core of the ti-st
code is now in the drivers/misc/ directory in the linux-next tree, and
this patch is the request to move the bluetooth drive into the proper
drivers/bluetooth/ location.
