Support Bluetooth when it's used at boot
Do we want to support bluetooth somehow, or disable it more drastically? Enabling it would enable the use of some hardware, but what security / anonymity / privacy issues would it have? Beside, how much enabled is it already?
See what packages we should ship to support bluetooth hardware, for those who need it:
- A user reported that they had to install gnome-bluetooth and go to System->Preferences->Bluetooth, to get a bluetooth keyboard working.
Wait for protect against external bus memory forensics (#5451).

A plan could be:
- at build time, blacklist
- at (early) boot, rfkill block bluetooth
- in the Greeter, allow opting-in for Bluetooth
- in PostLogin.default, pass Bluetooth user prefs to tails-unblock-network
- in tails-unblock-network, if Bluetooth is enabled, remove the blacklist file and
rfkill unblock bluetooth
- for added safety, disable system-wide daemon and/or move gnome-bluetooth files out of the way?
- hardware-dependent device drivers?
- support enabling Bluetooth post-login if I forgot?
