This is wrong. -serial is legacy command line syntax that libvirt should never
use for any QEMU released in the last 2 years. New syntax is uses a combination
of -device + -chardev.

If you think libvirt has a problem generating command line args, then
rather than telling us about some random command line args you've
created yourself, please provide the actual args that libvirt has
generated. See /var/log/libvirt/qemu/$GUESTNAME.log for those.
