       hciattach - attach serial devices via UART HCI to BlueZ stack

       hciattach [-n] [-p] [-t timeout] tty type|id speed flow

       Hciattach is used to attach a serial UART to the Bluetooth stack as HCI
       transport interface.

       -n     Don't detach from controlling terminal.

       -p     Print the PID when detaching.

       -t timeout
              Specify an initialization timeout.  (Default is 5 seconds.)

       tty    This specifies the serial device to attach. A leading  /dev  can
              be omitted. Examples: /dev/ttyS1 ttyS2

              The  type  or id of the Bluetooth device that is to be attached,
              i.e. vendor or other device specific identifier. Currently  sup-
              ported types are

       speed  The speed specifies the UART speed to use. Baudrates higher than
              115.200bps require vendor specific initializations that are  not
              implemented  for  all types of devices. In general the following
              speeds are supported:

              9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200, 230400, 460800, 921600

              Supported vendor devices are automatically initialised to  their
              respective best settings.

       flow   If  the  keyword  flow  is  appended to the list of options then
              hardware flow control is forced on the serial link ( CRTSCTS  ).
              All  above  mentioned  device types have flow set by default. To
              force no flow control use noflow instead.
