I'm slowly tracking down parts of the problem with my scanner.  When I
tried the NetBSD kernel scanner devices (/dev/uscanner*) I identified
an issue with sane-find-scanner.  It lacks any definition for
NetBSD-specific kernel devices.  I submitted a bug report (category
tools) that provides a patch that fixes that.

The remaining issue with using the kernel devices is getting the
scanner information from the device driver.  I'm looking into that,
but if I hack in a hard-coded response to match the correct scanner
everything works perfectly.

I'm still not sure what is wrong with libusb, but I can get this
scanner to work just fine (at least in 8-bit mode).

I would very much appreciate it if someone will take the initiative
and commit the patch to sane-find-scanner to include the NetBSD kernel

Thanks for your help.
