and an USB device class.  It is a modern interface and I tend to
support only those readers.

They work using pcsclite and maybe even with CTAPI (use --ctapi-driver

particular with key generation.  Long running card operaion tend to
fail because some ifd handlers seem not to correctly implement the T=1
wait extensions.
