I'm not qualified to comment on that, but if this isn't picked up by a
committer you might want to consider using send-pr(1) to send this patch
to the FreeBSD bug database.

FWIW, I recall that most of the open source BT878 drivers don't do internal
sound, and instead rely on you to feed the audio channel into your soundcard.
At least, that's what works for me with a no-name TV tuner card; it even
included a male-male minijack cable to do so. So if that's all that's missing,
you might be as far along as anyone has ever been.
