  BCM2045 Bluetooth USB Device detected but not working

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Previous version of Ubuntu worked with my USB Bluetooth dongle (I used
  it for Bluetooh mouse).  However 140.4 LTS onwards is detecting the
  device, but the device cannot be enabled in any Bluetooth manager.

  Linux Asus-N56V-Ubuntu 3.16.0-45-generic #60~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri

  hard blocked: no

  BUS 003 DEvice 006: ID 0a5c:2039 Broadcom Corp. BCM2045 Bluetooth

  >hciconfig hci0 up
  Can't init device hci0: OPeration not permitted (1)

  >hciconfig -a
  TYpe: BR/EDR Bus: USB
  BD Adress: etc etc...

  Have noted that this issue is common to several varieties of Bluetooth
  adapter, but raising this because this specific adapter did work in
  previous versions of ubuntu (64bit 12.10)
