Below is sample output.  You can see how messed up it gets.  I also have
some printf()'s in my start program followed by a fflush that appears to not
be written to the console.  I assume it may have something to do with these
overlapping messages.  I have two reasons to disable level 4 printk on

1.  Clean up the mess
2.  I want linux to be invisible to the end user.
    Anything that is need to know can be displayed, everything
     will be sent to syslog.

Subject: Disabling Kernel messages

Every time I bind an address to an interface I get kernel messages.  I
believe these are level 4 and only informational.  Is there a way I can
config the kernel to keep a level 4 messages in the klog and not display
them on the console.  They'll still be available in klog but I do not need
the clutter at boot.
