Well, I'm setting the resolution myself, with --resolution=300 (the
same for xerox_mfp and smfp). Also, I'm using as color mode: "Lineart"
for xerox_mfp and "Black and White - Line Art" for smfp. But still 4
seconds vs 10 seconds. Can I get 'physical' with smfp :D?

scanimage --mode=Black and White - Line Art --format=tiff
--resolution=300 --batch=/tmp/scan_20130630_124135_%03d.tiff

scanimage --device-name=xerox_mfp:libusb:001:015 --mode=Lineart
--format=tiff --resolution=300
--batch=/tmp/scan_20130630_125035_%03d.tiff --batch-count=1

The usb problem with xerox_mfp was that `scanimage -L` shows the
xerox_mfp device only once, then it disappears. I need to replug the
USB in order to see it again, but this also means I cannot scan with
xerox_mfp. I can only reproduce this on a new laptop with usb 3.0
ports. Same kernel and SANE, old laptop -> no problem.

There is no problem with smfp, aside from the speed.
