bluetooth panel can't power up radio

There currently is no way to power up the bluetooth radio from the gui. It would
be nice to be able to control it from the bluetooth panel icon.

In the interim, it would be ok to have the radio powered on at boot (and left
on). This could be done with an executable script /etc/rcS.d/S98bluetooth:

echo "1" > /sys/bus/platform/devices/gta01-pm-bt.0/power_on

I don't like the idea to have bluetooth enabled the whole time. Until we had
more thinking how to integrate this properly into hardware management and applet
doing the echo on the commandline is not that bad. It's still a developer device.

I leave this bug open as it, of course, needs to be fixed once we are going to
phase 2.
