Another method, in case you just want to make the console usable again:

sysrq-NUM sets the console logging level to NUM . 

try pressing alt-sysrq-1 in the console, or:

  echo 1 >/proc/sysrq-trigger

In addition, what are those messages? Perhaps there is a specific way to
get rid of those messages.
