bluez 5.41 compiled/repackaged for raspbian jessie.

I’ve been working on a rasbpi bluetooth sensor collector, and while doing so, I recompiled the bluez packages against the latest bluez source.

While the collector’s not really ready to be released, I figured the packages might be useful to some out there.
