Hi Pierre, 
Good job!!

I have a Pentax DS Mobile600 (usb 0x0a17 0x3210). I added this to genesys_devices.c,genesys.conf and genesis.conf.in, using the Roadwarrior settings and then recompiled Sane. The motor seems to work correctly. The paper detection switches work correctly. The image comes out a blank white page. I supposed that either the CCD or the DAC flags are not correct. Later this week I'll try the other the other CCD settings and if they don't work I'll post a usbsnoop log.

Also, I made a table that summarizes the small, usb powered, mobile sheetfed scanners at http://sites.google.com/site/roadwarriorscanner/sheetfed-scanner.
