Actually I was testing CentOS 7 in a VM with smartcard, so that will
work fine.

Well, that's a lot better than years ;-)

Just curious, how are priorities set as to what functionality or code
changes are a priority vs another?  I am guessing it is based on the
priorities of the project supporting organizations (such as linux
vendors, etc.?).  But it sounds like I am one of the first to ask for
smartcards to work?  Given the push for smartcards across the government
I would have expected a lot of interest in stuff like this!
