Seperate RSA subkeys for decryption and signing or one for both?

are there arguments for preferring either

a) having one RSA subkey for decryption only and one for signing only


b) having only one RSA subkey for both decryption and signing?

Do any problems arise with the smartcard if the same key shall do different
