I am not sure, as there could not happen any testing. But in theory, it 
should work. In the future, there should be some afford made to make 
other resolutions than 2400, 1200 and 600 work, but these 3 are trivial 
with this chip.

I guess the manufacturer is not lying about the density of the ccd, so 
that should be enough. The rest of the settings is in real units. The 
backend calculates the exact number of pixel from the density and the 
width of the scanning area.

I'd first try to get the correct gpio setting for a full resolution 
scan(i.E. at 2400dpi). If you cannot get a full-width-scan, look for the 
DPISET register, and try half/twice the dpi there. Also, make sure the 
DPIHW is set for the 2400dpi mode.
When that works, figure out how to setup gpios for half_ccd mode. From 
the view of the current code base, you are done here. You can try to 
find a quarter_ccd mode(which would show up as half-width in the 
half_ccd modes), and leave a comment in the code, or even implement the 
quarter_ccd mode for real.
