HVM is now a viable alternative to PV in term of performances and low overhead 
but some functionalities very useful for linux servers are still missing. 

I've configured the domU and guest operating system to use ttyS0 as a console 
so I can see pxelinux, grub2 and then the operating system. 
Decent physical servers provide a way to redirect the BIOS and gPXE output to a 
serial port, I'm looking for the same feature with QEMU, is there any solution
