No...  although I have thought about making console output go to both the
VGA and a serial port, and have both input devices enabled in the past.
Mainly so that you can hook up a serial console AFTER the system has
dropped into ddb while running X.
However I didn't get past the first stage (thinking about it).

I also recall problems trying to run X when the system has a serial
console (to do with X trying to use serial port as a keyboard) - but
that may well have been fixed since I tried it.
