bluetooth updates

PPA description

These are packages for improved bluetooth.
Specifically I want/need my anker Q20 headset to work in hfp mode.

ofono-phonesim got dropped from debian/ubuntu because it depended
on qt4. Shortly after that someone ported to qt5 [1].
I filed a debian #960941 [2] to re-add it.

As far as I can tell, the ofono-phonesim solution described at [3] is
still required, so here we are. It seems that a upstream solution
is being discussed at [4,5,6] which may include 'hsphfpd' [7]

Note 2021-11-02: Uploaded a no-change backport of pulseaudio from 21.10 to focal which fixes some headsets for me. It now has some built-in hfp
support. (LP: #1576559 / pa #84 [8])
