Ah, you probably chose the "cdrom" access method...

These are kernel messages (you can also get them when dselect et.al.
are not running; it's similar to the unaligned trap messages.
However, it looks like these were meant to be debug messages, and
shouldn't have been put into the distributed kernel. I ignore them;
works for me :-)
