> Something changed in recent kernels, and the generic USB transport entries do not seem to be recognized in the case where a wifi and BT device share a single USB ID. As the OP's tablet has such a case, I suggest that 0bda line be accepted, but not the others. If I had a computer with an RTL8723AU, I would have a chance at debugging what changed, but sadly, that is not the case.

these Realtek devices are causing the most messy setup in a generic driver. And Bluetooth USB support has been really clean and simple for the last 10 years. I really wonder how many ways this gets done wrong before someone gets a clue and gets this right. At the end of the day this USB transport is 15 years old.

Anyway, for obvious reasons the content of /sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices should be included here so that someone can actually look at how the USB endpoints are configured.
