It is a fix in the sense that we were failing to work with some keyboards out
there that only support Bluetooth SSP KeyboardOnly IO capability and there are
few of those in the market now. But yes, we are not fix any crash, etc in the
kernel, not critical though. It is just improving compatibility of the
Bluetooth stack (which is important too). It's up to you merge this or not.
