Summary:
Exif support for scanimage

Detailed description
I've modified scanimage to store some metadata into Exif: scanner vendor and model, date, and software identifier. A patch vs scanimage.c in git is attached.

vendor/model is only added when the default scanner is used, since otherwise sane_get_devices isn't called, and that seems to be the only way to get the information from the backends.

It adds only to jpeg files, although TIFF and PNG may also be possible.

I hereby license this patch with the GNU General Public License Version 2 and any
later version, and also with the MIT License.
