I found a little time to fire up the board again this morning, so I gave
this another try to double-check - in fact this time I only saw it fail
3 times in 15 reboots. So something's certainly not quite right, but
it's not quite as terrible as the first try implied.

My suspicion at this point is that the DMA implementation might be
losing characters occasionally, and obviously the bluetooth firmware
transfer is going to be a lot more sensitive to that than a text console is.

Quite possibly, although my 3328 box doesn't have any UARTS connected or
exposed other than the standard debug console, so I can't easily
investigate there. I do have a 3288 box with similar serial bluetooth to
my 3399 which might be worth digging out for comparison with an
up-to-date kernel.
