Hi, I have added support for the 7260 bluetooth card in iwmbtfw(8). This means that firmware downloading will now work on this card. Unfortunately I've found bluetooth (called netgraph in FBSD) support quite unreliable so far; I can hear a bit of audio coming out of my speakers but then the connection resets. I have no idea why.
I will post the source shortly if there's interest.

We will also need to update comms/iwmbt-firmware for distributing the actual firmware file.

You may try to disable wifi while testing bluetooth.

AFAIK all these Intel adapters shares common antenna between bluetooth and WiFi and "coexistence" code has never been ported. So you can actively use only one RF device at a time.
