Yes, taken from a serial console no editing (hence my comment about
wrapping, as it's 80 chars wide), my /var/log/messages doesn't have
this, but then it doesn't have any messages from bootup, so I assume by
default it's not in there, (and quite how it would get in as syslogd
won't have started till the disks are mounted...)
