Should be possible to extend the image size in pixma backend by
declaring uint64_t instead of unsigned the following variables:
image_byte_read (in pixma.c),
image_size (in pixma.h)
cur_image_size (in pixma_common.h)
Debug statements should also to be adjusted, %llu instead of %u in the
different format strings, although this gives a compilation warning
anyway, as the gcc compile statement uses the -pedantic flag.
Unless someone has a better solution for sprintf 64 bits integers ?
Anyway, could you give a try on 9000F with those changes ?
