It's a keyboard/mouse port. The GXtra contains both a Sun GX framebuffer
and 2 serial ports to drive another console.
It shipped with special drivers to run a secondary X server, but if you
don't have them and if the serial ports show up "normally" then try the
doubleX package. It's normally designed to use a pair of normal serial
ports for the keyboard and mouse but if the ones on the card work it
should be plug and play.
Do a show-devs at the ok prompt and see if you get additional zs entries
for the 2 extra ports.
