I am trying to decode packets which are identified with channel ID
(Bluetooth). There is setup frame after which conversation starts.

Is there mechanism to identify packets based on (start_frame,
end_frame, channel_id)? conversation mechanism does not fit here.


Can you describe the protocol a little more?

If the protocol has that packets are segmented, and the segment
numbering runs continuously (modulo something) within a stream and there
are no packet numbers for the reassembled packet, then that sounds
similar to the GPRS acknowledged-LLC limitation captured in bug 2857.  

To reassemble this class of protocol a new reassembly function is
needed.  I would like to write a universal reassembly engine that
handles this in addition to the techniques already supported in
reassemble.c (because the code there is a bit rough around the edges),
but have not found time to do it yet.
