Subject: [bluetooth] linux-3.x regression (bisected)

Good day.

A while ago, my noname USB Bluetooth adapter stopped working, with from 
that point on only "Bluetooth: hci0 command tx timeout" appearing in the 
kernel messages.

I just now got around to looking at it and bisected this to commit 

Author: Andre Guedes <>

     Bluetooth: Add lmp_host_le_capable() macro

     Since we have the extended LMP features properly implemented, we
     should check the LMP_HOST_LE bit to know if the host supports LE.

while that commit cannot be reverted outright due to dependencies, 
reverting it functionally fixes things for me. That is, Bluetooth works 
again after applying (to linux-3.1.6):

It seems that my adapter wasn't ready for the change. It is a:

002 Device 002: ID 1131:1004 Integrated System Solution Corp. Bluetooth 

If more specific information is wanted (to add adapter-specific quirk 
handling, perhaps?) please be verbose on how to obtain it. I don't know 
anything about Bluetooth
