There's also an out of tree Mainstone Bluetooth driver which does the
same thing (in the pxa directory in ASoC git).

Quite frankly nice isn't the first adjective that springs to my mind
for how this stuff works in v1.  As with so many other things once v2
is in that should make life better.

I tend to agree with Frank here - if it's causing too much work for the
people with access to the hardware and nobody else can get the hardware
it's probably as easy to maintain it out of tree.  Like I say, there's
another public example of this sort of setup.

Ideally someone would contribute a driver for a reasonably available
platform that does this - OpenMoko doesn't since they use an analogue
connection for their Bluetooth audio.
