After upgrading bluez-utils to version 5.44-1 the tools hciconfig and hcitool (I don't know if there are others missing) are no longer distributed.
I don't know if this is intentional or simply they have been deprecated.

Steps to reproduce:
Install bluez-utils 5.44-1 over 5.43-2.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  Several tools are now declared deprecated and got removed by upstream decision. See also commit msg. If you rely on them rebuild the pkg using abs with --enable-deprecated.
