The scanner is fed sheets by the sheet feeder, hence a sheet fed
scanner. Compare with handheld scanner.

IMHO, these changes should not be committed although I don't mind if a
space or hyphen is put between sheet and fed. FYI, aspell with a UK
English dictionary suggests these as alternatives (1) and (2), resp.
# (0) is sheeted, which is just plain wrong in this case.
Just my 2 yen.
