RE: [bluetooth-dev] bt stack function calls

This is possible as of today using the functions in the apps/bluetooth/experimental directory.

For an example of a small application that does stack only initialization you can 
see the btinit.c which works in both usermode stack and kernel mode stack.

When compiled for usermode stack bt_if.c interfaces kernel code using direct
function calls and when compiled 'normally' it uses ioctls.

In order to compile for usermode stack you need to define BT_USERSTACK 
(not BTD_USERSTACK as in the old code...) in your makefile (this will be 
added later on, for now look in the apps/bluetooth/userstack Makefile).

There are still more to do in order to make _all_ functions work 
seemlessly together with both usermode stack and kernel stack but the most 
important stuff is there. You can see for yourself in bt_if.c what need to be 
done. However, as stated in the kernel readme file the usermode stack is still 
only intended for testing purposes and works a bit differently compared to 
the kernel mode stack.
