Have a look at the archive of this list and especially look for
"genesys" and "gl841". At least that's what we think the chipset is.
There is ongoing discussion about the inclusion of that chipset in the
genesys backend. Your scanner will need modifications, at least some
code is laready there.

Please send an output of "sane-find-scanner -v -v" of a recent
sane-backends. Just to make sure it really uses a gl841 chipset.
