[sane-devel] Epson (Stylus) CX 5400 confusion

According to the model decription files there are two backends
which support an Epson (Stylus) CX 5400
epson for "Epson CX-5400" with USB-IDs 0x04b8:0x0808 and 0x04b8:0x0801
epkowa for "Epson Stylus CX5400" with USB-ID 0x04b8:0x0801

I assume the "Epson CX-5400" and the "Epson Stylus CX5400"
are the same so that there seems to be a USB ID confusion and
a model name confusion for this model?

For details background information see

At least for the user who sent us the above bug report,
the epson backend does not work for his scanner 0x04b8:0x0808
(SANE debug outputs are attached to the bug report) but epkowa
works after adding 0x04b8:0x0808 to epkowa.conf.

Perhaps there is some subtle difference so that the epson backend
works only for0x04b8:0x0801 but not for 0x04b8:0x0808?
