What do you mean by that (less 4 reserved) ?

I think it is possible that you once connect to a device and after that
you can setup more than one rfcomm connection the the device ! Each
rfcomm connection should use a seperate ttyBTx. That means that more
than 7 ttyBTx could be needed if you setup a bunch of rfcomm
connections, even to different slaves.

You do this, if you weant to setup RFCOMM conns to other devices !

Do I think right ?
