You can use "setterm -msglevel X" to control what kernel messages
get printed.  However, I don't know if there is a level 'X' specific
to udev messages; you might end up turning off some messages that
aren't specifically from udev.

If you just want to get rid of all the messages, you can use
"setterm -msg off".
