`scanimage -d pixma` didn't improve the results either, but adding the
device to the device list did.

the attached patch adds an "i-SENSYS MF4500 Series" line to the list of
known devices. ("Canon MF4500 Series" is what my MF4570dn reported). the
usb pid is the same as for the already existing mf4550d (MF4550_PID), so
i reused that. as a result of the sequence, all 4500 devices should show
up as "Canon MF4500 Series" when connected by usb, but the 4550 stays
discernable when connected via network (provided i understand all that
discovery right).

capability-wise, the new device / device group is no different than all
the others already present. i've adapted the documentation to match that
we now probably support all MF4500 series devices. (at least on usb;
some might still use individual model numbers on network).

side note: the i-SENSYS MF4570dn seems to be identical with the
imageCLASS MF4570dw except it's not *w*ireless (only regular *n*etwork).
apart from generalization that could be done from that: it looks like it

please review and accept the patch.

best regards
