In Alioth bug #313734 [1] Yann Cantin reported that the Epson GT-5500
advertises itself as a SCSI processor device [2].

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 a correct udev rules file.

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

    commit ed0d09f8635a3004b267892fc00759d15de03aec

        Add wildcard for some Epson scanners

a wildcard rule is added matching on Epson devices containing the string
»SCANNER« in their model name.
