The kernel only allows one NET message per 5 seconds. With bursts of 50 messages allowed.

This is to protect against DOS attacks (kernel logs are usually writen synchronously thus severely slowing the disk accesses during heavy log activities).

See net/core/utils.c of the kernel sources for details.
