Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] qemu: Introduce 16550A serial console model

None of the existing models is suitable for use with
RISC-V virt guests, and we don't want information about
the serial console to be missing from the XML.

The name is based on comments in qemu/hw/riscv/virt.c:

 RISC-V machine with 16550a UART and VirtIO MMIO

and in qemu/hw/char/serial.c:

 QEMU 16550A UART emulation

along with the output of dmesg in the guest:

 Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 4 ports, IRQ sharing disabled
 10000000.uart: ttyS0 at MMIO 0x10000000 (irq = 13,
   base_baud= 230400) is a 16550A

CC'ing Rich mostly so that he can double-check the name
choice is sensible.

We should consider auto-adding the device to domain XML, if it's always
present in the machine type.
