First 'niash' SANE patch released

The first patch for SANE (version 1.0.6) has just been released. It adds a backend called 'niash', named after the main controller chip inside the HP3300/3400/4300 scanners.
Although experimental, it can do basic color-calibrated scanning on the HP3300, the HP3400 and HP4300 work too (but the image is stretched vertically and calibration may not work completely OK).
This patch was contributed by Ricardo Martins.
