I think this is also what I wrote a long time. And also this sysfs hack
should not go to upstream.

Over the years there has been some talk about solving the BT coex
properly, but I haven't seen any patches. I guess the proper solution
would be that BT subsystem in kernel would notify wireless drivers about
BT use?
