I have trouble getting the Epson GT-12000 SCSI scanner working. It is not
recognized by sane-find-scanner.
This is my SCSI card:
> 0000:00:0a.0 SCSI storage controller: Adaptec AHA-2940U/UW/D / AIC-7881U
Here is all the info:

(There is a second Epson scanner attached on the USB port)
I also tried to make epkowa or epson backend recognize the scanner with an
scsi Epson or
scsi EPSON "Stylus Storage" "Direct-Access" 1 00 00 00
Nothing worked. I suspect it could be because this scanner does not
return "Scanner" in the device ID ?
Another problem could be with the SCSI itself. When I do
modprobe -r aic7xxx followed by modprobe aic7xxx to re-scan the scsi bus the
computer hangs for several minutes and i get hundreds of these lines in
> [4295904.069000] scsi2: Someone reset channel A
> [4295904.075000] scsi2: Someone reset channel A
> [4295904.081000] scsi2: Someone reset channel A
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
