So it's a smart card reader and not the average 6-in-1 (or whatever) reader
which I expected. Unfortunately I've got no experience with smart cards so
I'm afraid I can't help you much further.

If the usbserial message has anything to do which this smart card reader you
can check for device nodes in /dev/usb/tts/ or other subdirectories
of /dev/usb/.

Since this device seems to be one of a kind, having its own driver and
support mail address, I suggest you contact the developers of the driver
for more information if necessary.
