i'm running debian testing on a T61. i don't use bluetooth often and i
didn't realise until now that it wasn't working anymore. it used to work
fine - i'm running kernel which i build myself. i know there
were some  module changes around the broadcom/bluetooth/usb stuff. i
just rebuilt my kernel adding some more bt modules from the bluetooth
drivers - no luck.

the bluetooth light comes on correctly and all is seemingly fine...

hciconfig -a
hci0:   Type: USB
        BD Address: 00:00:00:00:00:00 ACL MTU: 0:0 SCO MTU: 0:0
        RX bytes:0 acl:0 sco:0 events:0 errors:0
        TX bytes:0 acl:0 sco:0 commands:0 errors:0

not sure if i'm missing some modules here... lsmod:

lsmod | grep usb
btusb                  10248  0 
qt1010                  4960  1 dvb_usb_af9015
i2c_core               20676  10
bluetooth              47388  3 rfcomm,l2cap,btusb
usbhid                 20604  0 
hid                    30812  1 usbhid
usbcore               123684  7

lsmod | grep bluetooth
bluetooth              47388  3 rfcomm,l2cap,btusb

its been a while since i fiddled with all of this as all things i was
using were running just fine. 
i checked thinkwiki and an interesting bluetooth thread on this list in
april - no luck.

i'm stumped! suggestions appreciated.
