You could try the kernel command-line addition: i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 It is my understanding that all is good with kernel 4.4, so once installed upgrade and you should be sweet.

Finally the official package libfprint0 in repo of 15.10 does support this reader(138a:0017). I have a T440p with same fingerprint reader, I've tried it some weeks ago as login credential. Now I give it up, because comparing with windows driver and application, its accuracy is a bit poor; but at least, it can be correctly recognized by system.
