bluez hciconfig doesn't list the device class

I am using, bluez*3.7.

{Just to give a background:
We are trying to build/run bluetooth stack on an imx.31 (arm based) platform which runs linux.
bluetooth chip is connected to imx.31 platform via a serial port.
I am trying to connect imx.31 to a sony-ericsson mobile handset.}

1) "hciconfig -a", will list all the details of the connected device, like the device class, services, device local name etc. But in our case, it doesn't seem to list such details.
It shows as follows (hcidump is enabled, so there are more messages)
mx31# hciconfig -a

2) I tried setting the device class (that I found in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf) as "0x3e0100" using
mx31#hciconf -a hci0 device "0x3e0100"
Then the device class was listed properly but later PIN exchange failed.

{On another host PC (this runs a different version of bluez), when I edited the "hcid.conf" file to enter a different device class, and later when I ran "hciconfig -a", after running "hcid -f /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf", I could see this device class modification reflected}

Any suggestions ?
Am I missing something ?

Ebin Jose.
