I just found time, over the week end, to install 4.8 on said spare machine.
My SCM SCR335 USB reader works nicely out of the box with just
gnupg-2-0-15. No need for pcsc-lite nor ccid.

After starting the GPG agent, I could list and use the keys, both for
signing, decryption AND remote SSH login. I jotted down some doc here
[0].

Next step is trying to see how to do system auth as well! (;
