The easiest fix is to run, as root:
dmesg -n 1
This prevents all kernel logging messages except panic messages from
appearing on the terminal (see the dmesg(8) manpage for details). The
messages will still be written to the logfiles in "/var/log", however.
For your information, these error messages are being generated by the
"linux/drivers/net/3c509.c" network driver. It looks like, if your
network is particularly busy, you could receive so many packets in
quick succession that this message would be generated.
