Allow silencing of netif startmsgs.
By rc.conf(5), setting `rc_startmsgs="NO"` should silence netif's "Starting Network: lo0 ...".
This fixes one of many cases. A quick grep of /etc/rc.d indicates that at least jail, local, ppp, pppoed and rfcomm_pppd_server may also be ignoring the rc_startmsgs control.

Address @rgrimes suggestions
There is another case, /etc/network.subr invokes wpa_supplicant/hostapd start, and the message "Starting wpa_supplicant." is displayed. I don't know how to best address this one.

Start with the easy ones first.
The previous patch was wrong.
