Actually, I think one can. But I doubt HP is going to fix any firmware
bugs related to console speeds other than 9600.

Running 19200 was crashing A500 console/GSP last year. I finally
convinced the firmware team it was the same problem that happened
at 9600 (less frequently of course).
I haven't verfied it was fixed in new PDC.
