Subject: Re: [Bluez PATCH v4] bluetooth: secure bluetooth stack from bluedump
 attack

Hi Howard,

I would turn this into bt_dev_dbg actually.

This comment is misleading and has two spaces at the end. My proposal would be this:

Rest looks good. Either you send me a v5 or tell me to fix it up before applying the patch.
