Given that the source code for the Linux advansys driver
is over 600 KBytes long, we are very lucky that the
manufacturer actively maintains it. That driver is
currently being enhanced for their U2W adapter product
(which is probably overkill for most scanner requirements).

Interestingly, the FreeBSD guys pick it up from Linux
and convert for their OS (and on it goes ...).
