This is correct, though dmesg on solaris doesn't read the buffer, it's a
shell script that tails the messages file. It's just coincidence that
kernel messages go to that file. If you turn off kernel messages going
to /var/adm/messages, dmesg won't even show kernel messages anymore.

Just FYI.

I have a spelling checker
It came with my PC;
It plainly marks four my revue
Mistakes I cannot sea.
I've run this poem threw it,
I'm sure your pleased too no,
Its letter perfect in it's weigh,
My checker tolled me sew.
