  [Xenial][Bluez5] Low Energy Keyboard is paired incorrectly

Status in Unity Control Center:
Status in bluez package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Failed to pair low energy(bluetooth smart, 4.0 or 4.1) devices

  1. bluetooth smart mouse is being listed as "all type" in bluetooth-
  wizard, however it is able to be paired and use, even repair(i'm
  mentioning this because in some circumstance low energy device can be
  only paired once, bug #1515179)

  2. bluetooth smart keyboard is unable to use after bluetooth-wizard
  says "OK". Also the passcode input is also not acting interactively
  like when pairing with bluetooth 3.0 keyboard.

  Above scenario also being verified with bluetoothctl and blueman.

  More details about versions:

  xenial daily (20160307)
  bluez 5.37-0ubuntu5
  gnome-bluetooth 3.18.2-1ubuntu2
  blueman  2.0.3-1ubuntu1
  bluetooth controller 0cf3:e005 Atheros Communications, Inc. (hci version: 4.1)

  Tested devices:
  Designer Mouse, bluetooth smart (pairable, work, re-pair work)
  Designer Keyboard, bluetooth smart (paired, not working)
  BT3.0 keyboard, bluetooth classic (pair and work)
  BT3.0 mouse, bluetooth classic (pair and work)

  In control environment with the same hardware system and devices:
  trusty 14.04.1 + dist-upgrade (stay with 3.13 kernel)
  bluez5 5.35 (ppa: https://launchpad.net/~vidplace7/+archive/ubuntu/bluez5)

  It works with all above devices but can only be pairing through
  bluetoothctl, since the older bluetooth-wizard does not understand
  bluez 5.x. Everything seems works fine, although there are a lot more
  error messages, but since this bug is more about xenial, please let me
  know if we need more information about this, I'm able to reproduce
  this trusty scenario in anytime.

  Additional note:
  A little clarification, since I'm not sure how far the Bluetooth SIG is going to use Bluetooth Smart(Low Energy, or even Smart-Ready) to cover the versioning, I decided to just use what ever I saw on the product box.
