I do yous the following USB token ond FreeBSD-12 CURRENT and the 'pcscd'
is configured to be started by devd on device attach:

Mar  1 08:00:56 r314251-amd64 kernel: ugen0.2: <Identiv uTrust 3512 SAM slot Token> at usbus0
Mar  1 08:00:56 r314251-amd64 root: CCID uTrust, type: ATTACH, system: USB, subsystem: INTERFACE
Mar  1 08:00:56 r314251-amd64 root: /usr/local/sbin/pcscd
Mar  1 08:00:56 r314251-amd64 root: Unknown USB device: vendor 0x04e6 product 0x5816 bus uhub0

The OpenPGP card works fine as:

$ gpg2 --card-status

Reader ...........: Identiv uTrust 3512 SAM slot Token (55511514602745)
00 00
Application ID ...: D27600012401020100050000532B0000
Version ..........: 2.1
Manufacturer .....: ZeitControl
Serial number ....: 0000532B
Name of cardholder: Matthias Apitz

Do I have any chance to use the USB token and the card directly without
