According to the blog post of jhansonxi [1] the HP ScanJet 6100C
advertises itself as a processor device by using the value 3 for the
SCSI Peripheral Device Type [2].

        $ more /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:01:01.0/host4/target4:0:5/4:0:5:0
        ATTRS{vendor}=="HP "
        ATTRS{model}=="C2520A "

Since it is not using the normal value 6 for scanner device [2], this
has to be documented in the description file in the form

        :scsi "vendor" "model" processor

so that the program `sane-desc` can create the correct udev rules file.

Please note that this commit is for completeness as with Julien Blache’s
commit [3]

        commit 9b229f06b9fdca1098d7fb5181731b030fbdfccc
        Author: Julien BLACHE <jb at jblache.org>

                Add SCSI IDs for ScanJet 4c

the model attribute C2520A is already present in the generated udev
rules file.
