Great, saw you also updated the patches we currently have for touch,
thanks for that!

Should be able to give this a try on touch later this week, and let
you know how it goes.

While we should work on getting latest Pulse with latest Bluez5, what

then integrating it with Bluez5?

At least with that we can probably test Pulse itself a bit more,
before we land latest Bluez in the archive.
