Urghs. The scanner.c lack some functionaliry so it will never work
with this one! Please do not load it!

You do not have to emulate SCSI when using the CVS version.
The hpusbscsi usage is now _deprecated_! Please make sure it is no
longer loaded on your workstation!!!
Instead you must have the usbfs mounted:
mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb -o devmode=3D0666
(The devmode=3D0666 might be a security hole - if you have a sane
distribution simply ommit the -o devmode=3D0666; the hot-plug system
should make sure the device gets the proper permissions ...)
Btw: The backend homepage is:

Although you forced the scanner module to use your HP scanner and you
have a /dev/usb/scanner0 this device node will not be functional - due
to missing features in the scanner driver.
If you would only load hpusbscsi then you should get a scsi device
node - but this deprecated, make sure the usbfs is mounted (see above)
and the permissions of those files in /proc/bus/usb allow your user to
reda/wrtite the files.
