[Bug 584812] Re: uinput kernel module is not loaded automatically

@Pitti - It's not really suitable to add a dependency to the bluetooth
module, as the uinput device is required by userspace components of
bluez, not the bluetooth kernel module. We'd prefer not to build it in,
as it's only required on some systems, and not required for boot.

Adding it to the bluetooth init script would seem (to me) to be the most
appropriate solution, and is done in other init scripts (as well as
loading everything from /etc/modules). Or are we trying to move away
from this?

What are your concerns with the overhead? Is this primarily about
affecting machines with no bluetooth support?
