To try the OpenBMC port you don't need to solder anything; you just need
to find an ASMB4-iKVM module and program it.  Soldering is for if you
want access to the JTAG connector for low-level development (U-Boot
development, mostly).

The ASMB5-iKVM also works from a hardware perspective, but both may be
hard to find as the KGPE-D16 and the Opterons it uses are now out of
production.
