Thanks, this worked: in /etc/sysctl.conf I uncommented the line:

 kernel.printk = 4 4 1 7

so to stop low-level messages on console, and that bothering message did not
appear any more.  But still, when I plug in my usb pendrive, the following
message appears:

 sda: assuming drive cache: write through

.  How can I avoid this as well, and all undesired kernel messages?

Thanks again
