Hi Guix!

These two patches add opensc and yubico-piv-tool.  The former is
useful because, among other reasons, its PKCS#11 shared library can be
used with an SSH agent to fetch credentials from a smart card (such as
a YubiKey).  The latter is useful for interacting with the PIV
application on a YubiKey.  I have verified that both of these work on
my system for those purposes, with a YubiKey.

To successfully use the OpenSC PKCS#11 shared library with an SSH
agent, you need to take care to start your ssh-agent with the -P
option to whitelist the path of the library's .so file.  If you don't
do that, then any attempt to invoke ssh-add with the -s option will
fail with a generic message.

Chris Marusich (2):
  gnu: Add opensc.
  gnu: Add yubico-piv-tool.
