     bt3c - 3Com Bluetooth PC Card driver

     bt3c* at pcmcia? function ?

     The bt3c driver provides support for the 3Com Bluetooth PC Card, model
     3CRWB6096, to the Bluetooth protocol stack.

     This card needs firmware loaded before it will work. Due to copyright
     restrictions we cannot distribute the firmware with NetBSD, but if you
     have the card then you should have received a CD with the drivers on, or
     you may download the latest version from the 3Com website. Create a
     directory named bt3c in the search path of the firmload(9) kernel
     subsystem. Now, extract the driver archive and find the firmware file
     called BT3CPCC.bin, and place this file in the newly created directory.
     The firmware will be loaded automatically as needed.

     bt3c%d: Cannot open firmware
          This will be printed to the console if the device cannot open the
          firmware file as described above.

     bt3c%d: Antenna In
     bt3c%d: Antenna Out
          If the kernel is compiled with the DIAGNOSTIC option, these messages
          will be produced on the console when the card antenna position is

     bt3c%d: sleeping
     bt3c%d: waking up
          These messages will be produced when the card is enabled or disabled
          due to power change events.
