SubjectRe: Request to add bluetooth module identifier to net/rfkill/rfkill-gpio.c

Hi Sundar,

it does not belong in rfkill-gpio.c since this controls the power of the Bluetooth device. This belongs in the Bluetooth driver. We already moved all the Intel and Broadcom ones into hci_intel.c and respectively hci_bcm.c. So have the staging driver deal with the power GPIO.
