[Pkg-bluetooth-maintainers] Bug#821143: bluez: cannot pair with keyboards requiring SSP

Package: bluez
Version: 5.23-2+b1

Certain keyboards (including the Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard K760;
Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard K810; and the HP Bluetooth Keyboard K4000)
require a technology called "Simple Secure Pairing" which is broken in
the version of bluez currently available in Jessie.  For further details
of the problem, see Launchpad bug #1035431.

The attached patch to the package fixes the problem.  This patch has
been included in Ubuntu's trusty-updates repository and I would like to
suggest that it be proposed as an update to Debian Jessie.

I believe that the fix depends on a corresponding patch to
gnome-bluetooth; I am filing a bug against that package too.
