Thanks for replying to me here and on IRC. In order for nothing to get
lost, I am reposting what I mentioned on IRC here.

$ lspci|grep USB

This looks like it is attached to the xhci controller.

Output from bluemoon is as follows:

Bluemoon configuration utility ver 5.16
Controller Version Information
Hardware Platform: 55
Hardware Variant: iBT 2.0 (0x07)
Hardware Revision: 1.0
Firmware Variant: BT IP 4.0 (0x01)
Firmware Revision: 8.0
Firmware Build Number: 2-3.2013
Firmware Patch Number: 51

> You can easily check by running the "Inquiry (LIAC)” test from tools/hci-tester. Problem is that some of the HCI events are not making it to the host. They get delivered as soon as the device wakes up again. In this test case it is the Inquiry Complete event. If you poke the controller and send a new command, the even will be magically dequeued.

I cannot figure out how to compile hci-tester. The Makefiles from
bluez.git won't build it.
