This is a WAG, but... I wouldn't expect ctrl-alt-del to have any special meaning on a serial console.

If that is enabled, you could use a BREAK to get into the kernel debugger and reboot from there?

This is a serial console, sadly, there is no kernel :)

I just unpacked a machine, hooked it up and discovered it has some ish
with its drives.  So I'm hoping to use Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot it remotely
a few times while I wander through the various BIOS bits for the RAID
controller and junk.
