xsane dont detect scsi snapscan device with kernel 2.4

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010118
Even with the scanner found by the kernel as an scsi host, xsane dont find
it. The scanner cannot be used.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobe scsi-hostadapter
2. modprobe sg
Actual Results: xsane dont found snapscan device... and just freeze.
Even if we remove all kind of driver from the sane config file except the
snapscan then xsane dont freeze, simply dont find the device.
Expected Results: at the beginning, xsane must find the device and popup
its main window.
The bug is present in fisher and also in guinness if the kernel is upgrade
to a 2.4.x version. The device is found by xsane if kernel version is 2.2.x

I'm pretty sure this is a kernel problem.
Fixed in next kernel rpm release
