[Bug 989817] [NEW] Cannot change bluetooth device name

Public bug reported:
First, the bluetooth device name is incorrect by default. It should be
like "computer name + device number". In Ubuntu 11.10, if the computer
name is "mypc", the BT device name will be "mypc0". However, in 12.04,
it's always "ubuntu0".
Second, the trick using hciconfig hci0 name "new_name" won't work for
12.04 while it did work for 11.10. The name will restore to "ubuntu0"
after reboot or restarting bluetooth service.
Third, /etc/bluetooth/main.conf doesn't work. If I set the value for
"name" field in the config file, it won't affect the device name.
