Thanks for all responses. The patch was accepted and is included in
Linux 2.4.21-pre3.

Also in 2.4.21-pre3 are some other patches related to scanners:

* Devices without a bulk-out endpoint are now supported (e.g. Gt6801-based
  scanners like Artec Ultima 2000, Mustek ScanExpress 1200 UB Plus,
  Bearpaw 1200 CU and clones)
* Devices with more than one interface should work now (multi-function
* The ugly message "Unable to access minor data" isn't printed
  anymore. That speeds up scanner detection considerably.
* Unplugging opened devices doesn't result in use counts that don't
  decrease any longer. However, the crash on writing to unplugged
  devices isn't fixed yet.
* Documentation was updated.

If there are any more patches or ids of devices that should go in,
please contact me.
