Re: [PATCH] Add HID->HCI switching supportfornewer Dell BT cards

I don't believe the BlueZ/hci_usb setup can currently store the pairing in the adapter, but I'll investigate this week.  Currently the infrastructure should allow a pairing that was set in Windows to still live inside the adapter and transition to Linux per my understanding.

I'll see what documentation I can obtain from our Bluetooth Team that would be available for public release.  No promises there though :)

Right. Do you have any documentation on how to store that pairing
information inside the adapter, or does it work out of the box in Linux

I've mainly got experience with Logitech dongles and Apple internal
adapters that do the same, but we're lacking documentation to make those
work properly.

Any documentation about the Dell kit would help.
