Interesting, I've never seen a desktop with built-in bluetooth, although
I've also had very little to do with any recent desktop systems. But at
least on laptops, the bluetooth is usually hooked into the USB bus.
I just looked on-line as a few PCI bluetooth adapters. All that I saw
were combo WiFi/Bluetooth. They all had either a female USB connector
on the card or a 4 pin header labeled USB.

Yes, I'm pretty sure it's just informational, nothing critical. Although
given that the product information was missing, that might be the descriptor
it was trying to read.
There was an entry in /sys/bus/usb/devices/2-1.5 called descriptors.
Trying to pair that with the reference Fred pointed me to makes me
think the descriptors don't match the standard. The first data
field seems an invalid size and value. Maybe that is why the
message is being printed.
