Maybe remove it from the kernel and add it by default in 
/boot/loader.conf, in case most scanners works with uscanner. I 
personally made it the default behavior for ulpt, ikbd, ums, uhid and 
uscanner, to avoid constant recompiles:

ukbd_load="NO" (my HP mouse is confused with this one, I'm using a PS/2 
keyboard anyway)
