CCID backports (libccid)

PPA description

Backport of more recent libccid versions to stable Ubuntu versions. This PPA started out of the need to get a Broadcom 5880v5 smart card reader to work. This type of reader is found in recent Dell Latitude machines, e.g. the E7250/E7450/E7470. Listed with lsusb as:

  0a5c:5804 Broadcom Corp.
  0a5c:5834 Broadcom Corp.

But of course many other readers are now supported in this newer version.

It may be required to restart the PCSCD service after updating. I.e.:

$ sudo service pcscd restart
