I missed the start of the conversation, so the following suggestion may
be irrelevent. However, if the goal is to get kernel messages displayed
in lots of different places, this is easily done by running syslogd, and
adding the following to /etc/syslog.conf:

kern.*;*.err      *

If you don' want them slatered everywhere, but only on 
the console, then:

kern.*;*.err      |/dev/console
