Well, on some Wiki pages there is a section "2.6 kernel" and a section "3.x" kernel, but not all of them.

Generally, the 3.x kernels try to hide more explicit controls from the user and make things more automagic.
To start e.g. GPS, just cat </dev/ttyO1. On the older kernel you have to power on and reset the GPS through
GPIOs, enable the antenna voltage through /sys and then open the device file.

Yes, the /dev/ttyO port is variable in speed (default is 9600). But not the Bluetooth module at the other end.
It has a flash memory where its baudrate is stored. It *can* be changed but there is no need to do that. And
it is pre-initialized to expect 3 MBit/s because that is the maximum speed and allows up to around 2 MBit/s
bluetooth data transfer (if the other Bluetooth end points are capable to do so).

Ok, for a keyboard you won't need 3 MBit/s max. data rate :) But the hci protocol takes care of everything.

Good luck,
