My laptop HP dv6 is equipped with a fingerprint reader for user authentication.
The device is apparently detected since it is listed in 'lsusb' like:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 138a:0005 Validity Sensors, Inc. VFS301 Fingerprint

The problem is that Yast -> Fingerprint reader module reports there isn't any
fingerprint reader device on the system.

Reproducible: Always
