I bought an external (USB connected) NFC reader/writer to play around
with. I did get the basics to work (could read information from
several cards) with libnfc, but the urgency of that particular project
dropped so completing porting that dangles somewhere on the lower

In the end, I found a dongle on ebay that attaches as:
ugen2 at uhub4 port 2 "SCM Micro SCL3711-NFC&RW" rev 2.00/2.07 addr 3
