prevent bluetooth from loading (manjaro, no wifi/bt card installed)
Running Manjaro (new install this week, manjaro build for rockpro64, v21.12).  I do *not* have the wifi/bt card installed

I'm attempting to triage a different failure, but bluetooth messages are all over dmesg.  Since i don't plan on using BT at all, i'd just like to prevent whoever is writing that from loading:

$ dmesg
[  11.202048] Bluetooth: HCI UART driver ver 2.3
[  13.143625] Bluetooth: BNEP socket layer initialized
[  13.512037] Bluetooth: hci0: command 0x0c03 tx timeout

$ lsmod | grep -i hci

what's the RIGHT way to disable this in manjaro?  Looks like there are several obvious modules I could blacklist, and the `systemd` service.  I'm new to Manjaro, looking for the "standard" / maintainable / stable over rolling upgrade way.  It also seems confusing to me that the `bluetooth` service isn't failing, or at least immediately exiting, given there is no HW present.


One of the reasons I'm asking how to do this correctly, rather than just blacklist (presumably would prevent these ringlog messages) or disable with systemctl, is that I'd like to understand the modules are loaded in the first place.

I'm no linux expert, but have been daily driving for some time.  My limited understanding would expect that (for the bluetooth/bt* modules to be loaded, they would have to be ONE of
  1. some HW present, which at kernel boot would be probed, and udev would later load the module based on HW id's (again, no HW connected AFAIK)
  2. have an explicit load in /etc/modules-load.d (I have zero files there)
  3. be an explicit kernel param in grub (nothing in /proc/cmdline)

Are there other ways that those modules would get loaded automatically at boot?
