You are in the right place.

Your paste indicates that this is a GL848 or later chipset. It could
be supported by the genesys sane backend, which is basically
unmaintained currently. However, you might get lucky and be able to
entice the former maintainer/author to come out of retirement
<stef.dev at free.fr>. If not, he has left some documentation at:
https://github.com/stefdev49/syseneg . Hopefully that will enable
someone on this list to take you up on your offer. If it is similar
enough to an existing scanner, support may be simple.
