Hmm, change the normal/debug stuff to level KERN_{INFO,DEBUG), and don't
spew it out to the screen (to the logs tho ;), and copyright messages to
KERN_NOTICE, everything else (errors and such) to
KERN_{WARNING,ERR,CRIT,EMERG}, not really a big change, just info, and
debug level stuff dosn't get to the screen.
