Ok, did that. It didn't help though.

devlabel add -d /dev/sda1 -s /smartcardreader

/dev/sda1 does not exist.
Failure. Since this device does not exist, it did not return an identifier.

Practically the same message was returned for /dev/sda.

Could it be a problem that it contains 6 containers for different kinds 
of smartcards?
