gniibe triaged this task as High priority.

Priority is high, because Gnuk Token requires this feature for testing its implementation.

Interaction will be something like this:

$ gpg --card-edit
...
gpg/card> admin
Admin commands are allowed

gpg/card> uif
usage: uif N [on|off|permanent]
       1 <= N <= 3

gpg/card> uif 1 permanent
gpg/card> uif 2 permanent
gpg/card> uif 3 permanent
gpg/card> quit
$

I think we should not backport this to 2.2 - okay?

No. I intentionally select: Not-backporting this feature.
The feature is added for Yubikey, in the specification.
Use of the feature by Data-Object is not that so useful.
