My intention was to only modify sanei_usb_init function. This would change 
the default value for libusb_timeout if SANE_USB_TIMEOUT is set. Generic 
"hp" backend does not use sanei_usb_set_timeout() function and will only 
use the (replaced by SANE_USB_TIMEOUT) default. Those backends that 
explicitly set the timeout with sanei_usb_set_timeout() will override the 
default with whatever they think is appropriate...

Is this the right thing to do? Please advise
