The same happens with other kernel message (like slow usb devices attaching),
I think there is already a PR about it.

Solutions are simple:

 - make sysinst run on ttyE1 instead of console (I think FreeBSD does
   something like that)
 - add a way to disable/enable kernel messages on the console and use
   that in sysinst
