  The output goes into the kernel message buffer, which will appear on
the console, in dmesg, and some /var/log files depending on how you have
klogd setup...
  After hitting A-S-h you should see something like:

dmesg | tail -1
SysRq : HELP : loglevel0-8 reBoot tErm kIll saK showMem Off showPc unRaw
Sync showTasks Unmount 

  If you try the above and don't see the line it is probably being
turned off at runtime.

find /etc -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -l sysrq 2> /dev/null | less

If you find any lines that appear to be doing the echo you can comment
them out, if you don't find a line you can put your own "echo 1 > " 
into the bootup sequence if you want...
