If poldi is configured in the PAM stack, there is a reader, but no
card inserted, poldi waits indefinitely for a card. In a scenario
where authentication is poldi or unix (try smartcard, if failure, use
traditional UNIX password), if the user has no card with him, this
keeps him from authenticating.
