Revision c845f401


Added by Gerd Hoffmann about 12 years ago

Allow -serial chardev:<name>

Lets put -chardev into use now. With this patch applied chardev:name is
accepted as chardev specification everywhere, i.e. now you can:

-chardev stdio,id=ttyS0
-serial chardev:ttyS0

which does the same as '-serial stdio".

Muxing can be done this way:

-chardev stdio,id=mux,mux=on
-serial chardev:mux
-monitor chardev:mux

You can mux more than two streams.
