How/when does uscanner create the entries in /dev

I have just got an EPSON Perfection 610 USB scanner.

I have 4.2 stable and uscanner.ko found the scanner and correctly
identified it but failed to create /dev/uscanner0. I used mknod
and guesed at a major device number (found on a web page) and it worked.

I am wondering what the correct way of doing this is as I really want to use
the scanner on a different machine.

Cheers, Roger
