Thanks, applied. Though, I don't think even this is really completely
correct, but it is obviously better than the previous situation. It
might be worthwhile to just remove the sim_type argument to scard_init()
completely and always initialize PC/SC with an attempt to use both
types. Validation of EAP-SIM and EAP-AKA/AKA' compatibility should be
done properly for each network separately rather than during initial
setup of the scard context.
