There is already a backend for hp 3970 which works for 4070 too.
Basically devices are the same and use the same chipset. The only
difference I know is that 4070 has a bigger area to scan
slides/negatives. Backend is functional but it's not finished because
calibration proccess is not completed.

According to 4370, it uses a different model of the same chipset. It
seems to work mecanically and acustically but it gets a black image.

It would be great if HP decides to provide neccesary information to
complete this backend.
