What I want to do here is to remove all the other methods and just use
virtio-serial always.  virtio-serial is now available on all the
platforms we care about (possibly excluding RHEL 5, where it is being
added).  As you noted, it is also much faster than the current
SLIRP-based network.

If virtio-serial is the only supported option, then we can remove the
guestfs_vmchannel= option entirely (and good riddance).
