Bug description:
  This is on an ASUS N550JV. Basically, the Bluetooth is sporadically
  available after restart/login. When not available, we get an error msg
  in dmesg about a patch that failed to load.

  Things already tried (to no much avail):
  - Update BIOS to latest version
  - Install "bluetooth" package
  - Enable ath9k bt coexistence (as per http://5thpeephole.blogspot.be/2013/10/install-ubuntu-1310-in-asus-n550jv.html)
  - unload / reload ath3k module:
  $ sudo modprobe -r ath3k; sleep 1; sudo modprobe ath3k
