[Bug 1595767] Re: bluetooth HW not initialized Dell XPS 15 9530 (Ubuntu 16.04)


Did this issue start happening after an update/upgrade?  Was there a
prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer
to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest
v4.7 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following
tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as

Thanks in advance.

  bluetooth HW not initialized Dell XPS  15 9530 (Ubuntu 16.04)

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 16.04 desktop edition does not properly initialize the bluetooh
  hardware in the Dell XPS 15 9530.  lsusb show the hardware as:

  Bus 003 Device 004: ID 0a5c:216f Broadcom Corp. BCM20702A0 Bluetooth

  Running bluethoothctl as root show only a driver named:

  [bluetooth]# list
  Controller AC:D1:B8:C0:CE:E4 ChromeLinux_7236 [default]

  I don't know what ChromLinux_7236 is.  It does not seem related to
  Broadcom but rather Google.

  Scanning for bluethooth devices just timeout - assuming the
  ChromLinux_7236 is acting as some sort of stub answering the API but
  not providing any actual bluetooth device scanning.
