Bluetooth failure - ATH3K Loading patch file failed

Hi All,

I’ve seen various posts about issues with this device which span at least a year. Yet, it is still not fixed in OpenSuse’s current release, 13.2.

The latest, and most relevant post is Bug 923538, but this recommends the installation of a stable kernel from an additional s/w repository, which has now progressed to kernel 4.1; OpenSuse 13.2 is delivered with 3.16(??!)

Is this still the recommended fix? Will installing kernel 4.1 break my installation?
