You need to clean the logs yourself, but they should be rotated on
reboot, if they're too large.

NOTE: As syslog is run as root, it can fill the rootfs completely
(some space is reserved for root only).  If that happens, the device
may not boot up and you need to reflash it.
-> I would run syslog only when directly debugging something
