There is a compile-time preprocessor macro named ELF_VERBOSE
having an effect in /usr/src/sys/boot/common/load_elf.c, but
the message you see seems to be written to the console when
ELF_VERBOSE is _not_ set. You could change that file and
recompile + reinstall the corresponding parts of the OS to
hide the (harmless) diagnostic message.
