I think your previous idea of adding a a new function to set the
currently 'active' endpoint would be simpler. something like:

/*endpoint types*/
#define SANEI_USB_BULK_IN  1

sanei_usb_set_endpoint(SANE_Int dn, SANE_Int endpoint_type, SANE_Int
  switch/case setting devices[devcount].xxxx

Then you've only got one new function, and no other code changes?
