The fact that some messages go into /dev/console probably means that the 
kernel log daemon is not told to be quiet enough.

Try modifying /etc/rc.d/init.d/sysklogd to contain the following (but without 
your patch)

                echo "Starting system log daemon..."
                loadproc syslogd -m 0

                echo "Starting kernel log daemon..."
                loadproc klogd -c 4
		# maybe even -c 3
and report us the results.
