  Do not print kernel debugging on console. In case of serial console
  this can cause a really heavy load on system. Several kernel debugging
  messages can be triggered even remotely (e.g. bad ARP replies).
  Use kern.warning instead, so that really significant messages still
  will be printed on console.
