Extract the usb vendor- and device-id, use "usbdevs -v" for this. Next edit
/usr/src/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs, the file format is quite obvious. "make
buildkernel" transforms this file into #define statements and you just add
an entry for your scanner to /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/uscanner.c using the
same names as in /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs.

build and install a kernel or just the uscanner module and that's it.

At least, the above procedure worked for me with the 1260.

When you are done, file a PR with your diffs.
