I've modified sane_start() in rts8891.c to not fail if gain_calibration() 
returns error. It now scans the complete area and the output resembles what's 
in the scanner (black template for UTA use with green text) but it's blurry, 
shifted horizontally (and the gain is wrong, of course):

Looks like there's a problem with the sensor type?
