This will stop all the syslog generated messages, but it will not stop
kernel generated messages like device timeouts, hardware errors, lock
warnings etc, as they are actually printed by the kernel not syslog. 

If all you want is to use the console without the messages clobbering
your output, just swap to a different vty (eg. ALT+F2) as only vty 1
gets this output.
