I don't know about Reiserfs but vfat doesn't output anything when it is 
mounted with mount -a.
Have you tried  >/dev/null ? What about 2>/dev/null  ?
If both doesn't work, what you see is probably a kernel logging message. 

dmesg -n1
mount ....
dmesg -n7

increase the 1st number to the highest value that makes the messages 
disappear (probably -n6)

hwclock doesn't output anything on my system.
