grep told me that hci_h4p is used only in these (text) files:

* /etc/modprobe.d/maemo.conf
alias platform:hci_h4p hci_h4p

So this is not needed if kernel driver contains correct

* /etc/event.d/bluetooth-sysinfo
echo ... > /sys/devices/platform/hci_h4p/bdaddr

This upstart script contains code for reading mac address from
special sysinfod daemon and setting it to kernel driver. Once
there will be uniform way for setting mac address that script can
be changed.

So I think that renaming module will not break anything if kernel
module will get (somehow) correct mac address (or if random one
is acceptable).
