hp3900 focuses on RTS8822 and derivates. I don't know if RT58822 is just
a mistake or another chipset.

Here are the scanners we would need support for:
> 8290, 8350, 8390, 8420, 7800

 All scanners I've tested using RTS882x don't provide ADF functionality so I
recognize any related register and hp3900 doesn't support it.

hp3900 backend has extended options to test device's behavior using known
settings from recognized chipsets but this chipset is a bit complex needing
many data to be programmed (such as lamp settings, sensor type, sensor
motor steps depending on supported resolutions and so on). The idea is
windows' driver to extract all necessary data that may be different in each
model. That may take some time.
