On our UV systems, this really is redundant information and adds noise
to the console printout.  If you need to examine it, dmesg will provide
it (or don't use the limit_console_output flag)?

I had thought of some reduction techniques to reduce console output, but
it didn't seem worth the complexity.  Perhaps I was wrong?

Thanks,
Mike
