 Support for 8686 module is proving problematic because of how Android is
 customised for hardware; it currently expects a Bluetooth function as
 provided by the 8787, and when it fails to initialise it triggers a reload
 of the wireless modules.

 Making a separate build for 8686 equipped laptops is costly, so a
 workaround is being investigated, but not for the next release.
