    On those machines we're running releng_5_4.
But, as I said, I might be wrong. After all, it is quite some time since
I tried this.

I never tried using both at the same time, but I do know that I set ukbd
to 1, to be able to use the console. Then, when I was done and put the
machine into pre-production I used the DRAC. (Again, this is what I
remember - so I'm not going to argue points before I get a chance to try
it again).

The question we should ask ourselves though is why anyone would have to
use a 'normal' console keyboard, when there's the DRAC console.
