The new pam_console RPM emits debugging messages, messages about
perfectly normal and expected conditions, when the 'debug' argument
has not been specified to pam_console. The two immediately noticeable
(and annoying) messages are:
console %s is owned by UID 0
and console %s is a character device
These messages mean nothing more than that everything is OK. As such
they should only be emitted when debugging is turned on. Worse yet,
the code attempts to send them out at priority LOG_ERR, which should
be saved for things that indicate, well, important errors.
I will attach a simple patch to fix this.
