It seems to be the hobby of the BlueZ people to make their API
incompatible with every major update. As two bluez versions cannot run
in parallel, and AFAIK there is no compatibility layer, we have to wait
until every stupid application that uses bluez is updated. This always
takes very long, so don't hold your breath.
