I have just added support to sane-find-scanner for scanning whole
directories for SCSI and USB devices. Currently that's used for
Solaris (8 + 9) /dev/scsi/scanner/ and /dev/scsi/processor/
directories. All existing files are opened and probed as usual.

If there are similar directories on other architectures I would like
to know about this.

Also please test the new sane-find-scanner because I touched quite a
lot of code.

Thanks to Bruce Riddle and others for suggesting and testing.
