One of our prototype Linux systems was writing warnings about PCIe hardware correctable errors non-stop to /var/log/messages. The otherwise well-functioning system would run out of disk space before completing longer test runs due to the flood of warning messages in /var/log/messages. The root-cause of the messages (bad hardware/BIOS) will get addressed eventually but in the meantime the following quick hack worked to suppress the bogus warnings, saving disk space.
This hack worked fine on Red Hat Enterprise (RHEL) 6.3.
