Ok, as far as I understand, we have 2 models - 4140 and 4150 - which
share a same usb pid, but use a different pixma protocol version.
I'm having a look in the pixma backend on how we could deal with this.
What report sane-find-scanner and scanimage -L seems right:
sane-find-scanner reports info taken from the usb device itself, here
the MF4150 (same info as in a lsusb -v)
scanimage -L reports the info placed in the pixma backend for this
