Hi all:

Currently with typically gdm3 and gnome desktop, multiple instances of
pulse audio will be started, one for gdm3 login session and one for gnome
user session.

Once an bluetooth device is provisioned by bluetoothd, it is not clear
which instance of pulse audio will grab the devices, currently it may
depend on the start order of the instance of pulse audio.

And the current behavior is causing lots of troubles, user may not find the
sound card because it may be grabbed by the instance of gdm3 session. Is
there any way to share the device among multiple instances, so all
instances can play sound to the device.
