bluetooth: Fix an undefined behavior

The original creates a pointer to a compiler-generated temporary that is
destroyed when the scope is exited. The pointer is stored in a structure
defined in an enclosing scope and is invalid by the point it's used.

The fix holds the structure in a variable with the same lifetime as
the pointer.
