I just did a few successful scans! The patch does indeed make the scanner work, with two caveats:

1) Only every other call to scanimage results in a successful scan, the 2nd, 4th, 6th, etc scan fails the same way as before.
2) Even during successful scans the debug output contains an 'Error during device I/O', although I'm not sure if this is even a problem.

Debug output from a successful scan (1st, 3rd, 5th, ... call to scanimage): https://gist.github.com/jonemo/489414e8bc5590998890
Debug output from an unsuccessful scan (2nd, 4th, 6th, ... call to scanimage): https://gist.github.com/jonemo/8a4cf7d13a50556b3c41

I also tried scanning at 600dpi and it worked successfully (every other time).
