There used to be a scanner kernel module.  It was no longer maintained
towards the end of the 2.4.x kernels and removed in the one of the early
2.6.x kernels, 2.6.3 IIRC.  Considering that you are probably running a
3.11.6 kernel, there is *no* scanner module (nor should there be one).

Hope this helps,
