6 is the major device number for the parallel ports (ie. printer).
You probably don't have char-major-6.o :-), but do you have lp.o? If
so add this line to /etc/modutils/aliases:
alias char-major-6 lp
then run /sbin/update-modules. That should stop the annoyance.
However, maybe a more pertinent question would be, what/who is trying
to access the port?
