              respectively, to ask to become master or to remain slave when  a
              connection request comes in. The additional keyword ACCEPT means
              that baseband  connections will be accepted even if there are no
              listening  AF_BLUETOOTH  sockets.   mode  is  NONE  or  a comma-
              separated list of keywords, where possible keywords  are  MASTER
              and  ACCEPT .  NONE sets link policy to the default behaviour of
              remaining slave and  not  accepting  baseband  connections  when
              there  are  no  listening  AF_BLUETOOTH  sockets.  If  MASTER is
              present, the device will ask to become master  if  a  connection
              request  comes  in. If ACCEPT is present, the device will accept
              baseband  connections  even  when   there   are   no   listening
              AF_BLUETOOTH sockets.
