libnfc usb enumeration patch


There is a problem caused by pcsc-lite-ccid updating the names for some devices under the same USB PID that leads to libnfc-examples tools not detecting the touchatag reader (among others, I guess). Please, see bug 832983.

The attached patch solves the problem. Please, consider applying it to the current libnfc present in Fedora repositories.

I tried to do the same using the last libnfc available upstream but, after a succesful compilation, none of the tools seemed to work, throwing segmentation fault in all the cases. This happens with or without the patch.

Thanks you!
