FS#544 - Investigate and support new RX1HS

DNP's introduced the RX1HS to replace the RX1.  I'm told it's the same hardware, but requires different media.

Initial investigation shows it's added some features that were first introduced in the DS620.  (iSerial support, maybe more).  Backend changes will likely be minimal, but Gutenprint may require a tweak to expose any new features.

Further work will have to work until I get documentation or access to a printer.

Turns out the RX1HS *removed* one undocumented feature -- the ability to query the "initial media count".  Everything else remains unknown.

Finally obtained documentation on the RX1HS, updated backend and gutenprint to match it.

Still needs to be tested, but at least I'm confident I have the intentional differences covered now.
