Are these dongle supports classic mode or Ble?
Which profile are you using to establish connection between these two? (
PAN, ..etc)

After inserting dongles to host are you getting serial interface
/dev/tty* or hci interface ?
If its hci interface ,you can use hcidump to see packets  and check MTU

I think before jumping into driver level ,its better to ensure all
bluetooth parameters are same on both the setups.
