To get a clearer /var/log/messages, you can use the f_notfirewall filter 
proposed earlier in the thread, with something like :
log     { source(src); filter(f_notfirewall); destination(messages); };
in syslog-ng.conf.

However dmesg will still be cluttered : I don't think you have any other 
sane solution than ULOG for this.
Or maybe you should investigate why the usb messages are discarded ?

Christophe
