  Dell 355 Bluetooth adapter not detected

Status in The Somerville Project:
  Fix Released
Status in “bluez” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  I got Dell XPS laptop with integrated Dell 355 Bluetooth adapter. Bluetooth was working fine until recently - I am not exactly sure which upgrade broken it. I am running Kubuntu Intrepid with the latest packages (yesterday I upgraded to KDE4.2) and 
  2.6.27-11-generic kernel.

  My bluetooth adapter is visible in lsusb:
  $ lsusb
  Bus 005 Device 010: ID 413c:8126 Dell Computer Corp. Wireless 355 Bluetooth

  and I got this from dmesg:
  $ dmesg | grep Bluetooth
  [   12.193111] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.13
  [   12.193542] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
  [   12.193546] Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
  [   12.286201] Bluetooth: Generic Bluetooth USB driver ver 0.3
  [   49.234525] Bluetooth: L2CAP ver 2.11
  [   49.234535] Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
  [   49.263707] Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
  [   49.263727] Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
  [   49.263732] Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.10
  [   49.286626] Bluetooth: SCO (Voice Link) ver 0.6
  [   49.286635] Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized
  [   49.319307] Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3
  [   49.319316] Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast

  but when I start kbluetooth4 it can't see it (when I hover over the
  bluetooth icon in the taskbar Name and Address are empty).

  $ hcitool scan
  Device is not available: No such device

  When I plug in an external USB bluetooth (lsusb shows 'ID 1131:1001
  Integrated System Solution Corp. KY-BT100 Bluetooth Adapter') that
  seems to work fine, so the problem is only with integrated Dell
  Bluetooth adapter.

  Any clues on how to make it work?
