bhyve is currently somewhat limited in its options for serial port support. In order to support the bhyve brand, we need to be able to attach bcons on com1 to /dev/zconsole and com2 to a metadata socket. This support should be implemented in a generic way such that com1 and com2 can be attached to arbitrary devices that act like serial ports as well as unix domain sockets.

With this change, we should remove the bhyveconsole feature added by Pluribus. Note that socat can be used to connect to a unix domain socket.
