Package: bluez-firmware
Version: 1.2-3+rpi1
Severity: critical

Dear Maintainer,
this is a migration of:
The bluez-firmware package in devuan is missing raspbian's patches necessary to use the
built-in bluetooth adapter on the raspberry pi3 (rpi3). The patches are a part of raspbian's source:
The necessary patch is in debian/patches, and in the broadcom directory. It is
necessary for the
arm64 and armhf architectures, since the rpi3 can use either image, though raspbian's bluez-firmware is architecture independent. I cannot
guarantee that applying this patch won't break other architectures, so didn't take this farther on my own. The bluez-firmware package I'm reporting against
installed on this
system is raspbian's bluez-firmware from January 2017. So, it isn't what currently exists in devuan.

-- System Information:

Architecture: aarch64

Kernel: Linux 4.10.0-rc5-v8+ (SMP w/4 CPU cores; PREEMPT)
Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash
Init: sysvinit (via /sbin/init)

-- no debconf information
Package: bluez-firmware
Version: 1.2-4

The bluez-firmware package in devuan Chimaera contains the necessary
patches for the rpi3 bluetooth to work out of the box. I don't know
when the patches made it into the bluez-firmware package, but I assume
that was in devuan Ascii. I can try to track this info down if needed.
