Bug Description

Hi,

On Lenovo T470p there is a Validity fingerprint sensor with id [138a:0097]. It is not in the supported drivers list, but I would love to see it amongst the supported ones.

Description: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release: 16.04

Hi,
same for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Debian 10 testing.

Lenovo P51 use same sensor (Validity with id [138a:0097]), and it is not recognized by libfprint.

in project https://github.com/nmikhailov/Validity90#status, there is an utility named "prototype", that tests the sensor and seems to work correctly, led and finger scanner works.

I'd like to request this as well. Ubuntu 18.04. Tested the "prototype" on my T470 on Ubuntu 16.04 before I upgraded and it worked as well. Would be outstanding to have fingerprint functionality on this thing.

Same problem with same device on 19.04 using a Thinkpad X1 Carbon 5th generation.
