http://pcsclite.alioth.debian.org/ccid.html seem to have drivers for
generic smart card readers... I assumed that it would be part of the
kernel (like USB UVC, Mass storage and HID)... Quite strange that the
kernel have support for vendor-specific devices like Dallas
Semiconductor's 1-wire device but not for a (similar type device)
generic USB class.

For it to work under Wine, some kind of interface to whatever driver
is present should probably be needed though..

(I don't have any smart card devices to test / use)
