XPS 13 - Fingerprint reader Linux support

Hi there

I recently ordered the new XPS 9360 Developer Edition with the optional fingerprint reader. So far I haven't found any supporting documents that the FP reader is working under Linux.

Since this is a rather new addition I am patient but hopeful that we will eventually get a Linux driver.

Are there any infos on this?

The fingerprint reader as reported by lsusb is Validity Sensors Inc. "VFS7552" with device ID 183a:0091.
I have found an effort in reverse engineering the Windows driver: https://github.com/nmikhailov/Validity90
