I'm pretty sure they're independent, especially if we're talking about
PC hardware.

As for bad code in the audio driver - all kernel code can potentially
interfere with all other kernel code, but I don't think that's
particularly likely. You can of course unload the audio driver and see
if it makes Bluetooth work better.
