Need help with syslog messages
I finally put together a script to monitor the syslog.
I notice a few which I am not sure of what is important or not and am asking for help.
I have listed below what I am curious about and grouped those I presume are related (except 1st & last ones are related, I think):

hp-systray[7582]: error: option -s not recognized

kernel: [    0.277221] highmem bounce pool size: 64 pages

Re: The udevd messages: Is this Slackware 13.37? I used to get that every boot, but it stopped at Slackware 14.0. I think this is OK. Slackware 13.37 tried to start it from 2 places: rc.M and rc.S, so one failed because it was already running. This was fixed in Slackware 14.0 - the second time, it won't try to start it if it is already running.

I don't know what's up with the console-kit-daemon messages, but I also got them at Slackware 13.37 and no longer get them with 14.0.

Thanks for the update as per 14.0.
Now gotta figure what the kernel and hp-sys errors are complaining about.
hp-systray is a conundrum cuz the HPLIP driver DOES NOT work with the HP DESKJET 1000 J110 series printer and I doubted it would with HPIJS either so built a script to print a separate page file for each page thereby no longer getting pages 2-N overprinted. Not sure what hp-systray is/does or if it is another leftover.
