I'm dragging in linux-serial@vger here also, but I think uppercase
characters will work from a tty standpoint.  I don't know about keyboard
scancodes, if they will do "odd" things wanting a shift with the sysrq
key at the same time.

Oh wait, I think that might be it, shift is needed for the sysrq key on
the keyboard to start with, right?  So there probably isn't a way to
test the difference of a lower/upper case key here.

I'm traveling this week, and don't have access to a "real" keyboard at
the moment, but this should be pretty easy for someone to test who has
one and cares about this type of thing {hint}.
