    etc                  syslog.conf 
  MFC 1.27:
    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.

    Security:     this change fixes a DoS condition, when default system
                  console is serial, and box is flooded with bogus ARP
  Revision  Changes    Path  +1 -1      src/etc/syslog.conf
