     uscanner -- minimal USB support for scanners

     uscanner* at uhub?

     The uscanner driver provides minimal support for USB scanners.  The driver recognizes a num-
     ber of USB scanners, but to actually scan anything there needs to be software that knows
     about the particular scanner.  The SANE package provides support for some scanners.

     The uscanner driver works with the following scanners:

	   Perfection 610U
	   Perfection 636U
	   Perfection 1200U
	   Perfection 1200U Photo
	   Perfection 1260
	   Perfection 1660
	   Perfection 2400

	   ScanJet 4100C
	   ScanJet 5200C
	   ScanJet 6300C

     Many other scanners are recognized, but there is no software support for them yet.

     The uscanner driver appeared in NetBSD 1.6.

     This driver should not really exist.  The scanners it recognizes can be accessed through the
     ugen(4) driver instead.  A proper scanner driver would provide a uniform interface to scan-
     ners instead of exposing the innards of the scanner.  The reason the driver exists is to
     have something that is compatible with the Linux driver.
