The open source bluetooth stack BTstack (dual GPL + commercial license) has been compiled for Zynq the code does even fit into OCM, well we do not need it as we have plenty of flash space for code, but for development purposes its easier to load the code into RAM for fast debugging.

This just the first successful compilation of BTstack in Xilinx SDK 2014.4, the HAL layer is not implemented, BLE support is excluded.

Second stage bootloader of course can use BT SPP connection, that is the plan. We just got the btstack minimal test working today, the "led counter" stack test works. All compiled, interrupts and timer initialized, run_loop handler set to hear-beat handler, where LED is blinking. Working. Next step is to add UART routines and then can already test the stack with real communication also.

Do you have any plans for a BT bootloader?
