Description

In 2.5.0/21.02 we added the pcscd service to builds for #9878 and it gets run at startup in all cases to handle certain cryptographic smart cards (e.g. PCKS#11). It consumes resources unnecessarily in the majority of cases where it is not needed. It should be made optional and disabled by default on new installations.
