This commit adds a simple chardev-based serial port. Any data the guest
sends is forwarded to the chardev and vice-versa.

Sample uses for such a device can be obtaining info from the guest like
the file systems used, apps installed, etc. for offline usage and
logged-in users, clipboard copy-paste, etc. for online usage.
