So far I haven't had any luck...

Hmm.... well, it turns out that it was only doing this because I fed
it an options line in /etc/modules.conf with those items. When I took
it out, it didn't report anything.
These are the kernel messages logged by the drivers:
usb-uhci.c: USB UHCI at I/O 0x1060, IRQ 5
usb-uhci.c: Detected 2 ports
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
hub.c: USB hub found
hub.c: 2 ports detected
usb-uhci.c: v1.251 Georg Acher, Deti Fliegl, Thomas Sailer, Roman Weissgaerber
usb-uhci.c: USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver
hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x1606/0x230) is not claimed by any active driver.
Of course, the scanner module has not been loaded at that point...
But then when I load it, I only get this:
usb.c: registered new driver usbscanner
scanner.c: USB Scanner support registered.
Nothing about my scanner hardware. And lsmod gives this:
Module Size Used by
scanner 6464 0 (unused)
autofs4 9344 1 (autoclean)
usbcore 49424 1 [scanner]
unix 14944 19 (autoclean)
Notice that the scanner module is unused. :(

The device files all existed (after I created them the first time) and
have the correct major and minor numbers. They were originally set
600, but I fixed that. No help.
I'm wondering also if this couldn't be an IRQ thing... My laptop has
THREE devices on IRQ 5: the usb bus, the crappy winmodem (which I
don't have a driver for), and the maestro sound card.
I'm going to try compiling the drivers in and see if that makes a
