I bought a belkin f8t002 bluetooth pcmcia card for my laptop
neither google nor the bluez project have any help with this card
when i insert it cardctl ident says:

Socket 0:
  product info: "OXSEMI", "OXCB950", "Rev A"
  manfid: 0x0279, 0x0001
  function: 2 (serial)
  PCI id: 0x1415, 0x950b

/var/log/messages says:

Nov 23 14:55:13 [cardmgr] unsupported card in socket 0
Nov 23 14:55:13 [kernel] cs: cb_alloc(bus 3): vendor 0x1415, device 0x950b
Nov 23 14:55:14 [cardmgr] no product info available
Nov 23 14:55:14 [cardmgr] PCI id: 0x1415, 0x950b

i did a manual insmod of serial_cs bluez serial
i installed all the bluez sw
I have a /etc/pcmica/bluetooth.conf file but it has no 
listing for my card

lspci WITHOUT the card inserted says:

lspci WITH the card INSERTED says same thing but also gives
an error msg:

my laptop is a dell x200 running gentoo linux
