It's out of consadm(1M) scope. consadm is only able to add/remove
serial/modem tty into the auxiliary console devices.

We have the system console and virtual consoles on Solaris.
consadm can be enhanced to support adding virtual consoles into
the auxiliary console devices list if really needed.

The system console is special, we need some key sequences to
switch to the system console. Alt + F# is just for virtual consoles,
and Alt + F1 goes to the first VT.

Then "Alt + Home" or what else?
