Re: [PATCH] blutooth: try to improve CONFIG_SERIAL_DEV_BUS dependency

Hi Arnd,

> ERROR: "hci_uart_register_device" [drivers/bluetooth/hci_nokia.ko] undefined!
> scripts/Makefile.modpost:91: recipe for target '__modpost' failed
> Changing this in the Makefile would cause another problem when
> hci_uart itself is built-in and cannot reference symbols from the
