I'm not sure if I understand what you mean exactly. The command
"modprobe scanner vendor=..." tells the kernel scanner driver that the
device with those ids is a scanner. The driver has a fixed lists of
scanners and obviously it can't know new scanners. There is no way to
find out if a device is a scanner without that list so if the scanner
is not known, you must give a hint to the scanner driver.
