Hey folks,

I wanted serial-over-lan support in virtualbmc so that I can use it
for testing while working on getting nova-serialproxy support into

It turns out that sol support had shown up early in 2018 [1], but was
subsequently pulled [2] due to a file descriptor leak.  I've tried to
rewrite the sol implementation to avoid the file descriptor leak; you
can see my work so far in:


It Works For Me at this point. If this is something that interests you
I would welcome your feedback. The change is currently marked WIP
because there are numerous unit tests that need to be rewritten.
