 Assuming these are kernel informational or debug messages, change
the logging level.  I run the following to ensure only errors or
worse hit the console.  The original suggestion was from somebody on
lfs or blfs support several years ago, possibly Marc Heerdink -

 sed -i 's/\(loadproc klogd\)/\1 -c 4/' /etc/rc.d/init.d/sysklogd

See 'man klogd' and be sceptical when it says klogd doesn't need to
set this value anymore.
