AFAIK with a single dual-headed card that is not possible. With two
cards it might work, provided that the video driver in X can drive the
second card without ever touching the legacy VGA I/O space (since that
can be enabled for only one card at a time, and there is no
infrastructure currently to arbitrate which card has it enabled).

Serial console or netconsole is far easier.
