bhyveis currently somewhat limited in its options for serial port support. In order to support the
bhyvebrand, we need to be able to attach
com2to a metadata socket. This support should be implemented in a generic way such that
com2can be attached to arbitrary devices that act like serial ports as well as unix domain sockets.
bhyveconsolefeature added by Pluribus. Note that
socatcan be used to connect to a unix domain socket.
