Re: [bluetooth-dev] Why to declare twice things ?

Hi Alain,

you are right, I wondered about the same issue.

I have got an other issue concerning the ioctls: Is it possible to define some ioctl values as
"reserved" ? I added some ioctls for my special use and I had to change them in the past when a new ioctl
was added.
