Support of card readers with displays

Dear list,

while several shops list smart card readers having built-in pin pads
and displays, I fail to find even a single such reader that is fully
supported by GnuPG. By that I mean
- Signing, encrypting, and other basic operations work,
- Pin entry via the card reader's pin pad is possible, and
- Pin prompts get shown on the card reader's display.

The list's last item is the problem.

Am I just lacking search engine foo, or does no such card reader

Best regards,

P.S.: Required operating systems, driver layers, etc are less of an
issue. But there are bonus points if the reader can be used under
GNU/Linux using free software only.
