Yes, it would be preferable not to flood the logs, however in this particular case, things got so strange, I still can't narrow down how exactly this situation happen.
The device that caused this, was connected to the system via USB bus, there was no explicit messages from kernel regarding the unidentified device. OS for some very strange reason, right after the very first boot after installation, enabled all kind of the futures for blind persons and persons hard of hearing... speech/voice over got turned on by a default for example.
As soon as this 'usb module / component' was removed, all the weirdness and strange behavior of OS was gone. No errors in logs, normal boot and shutdown with out any delays.
This makes me to think that there was more involved issue rather than just 'brltty' spamming logs. Perhaps on a kernel level?
This is beyond my level of expertise.
