Re: [bluetooth-dev] Porting the Axis stack to other OS's

The Bluetooth stack itself can be implemented independant of the
operating system.  The Axis stack still has a few things that tie it
closely to the Linux driver (ioctl calls).  Other than that, you can
strip the stack portion itself away from the driver, rework a few
things...and away you go.  The stack itself is basically just a byte
stream parser.  No need to get too fancy tieing it to any particular
OS.  The good thing about this stack, is the driver work that has been
done to enable bluetooth devices to be used with Linux.

Hope this helps,
