Hi all

I am looking to solve a problem regarding a virtual serial device, 

I would like to create an array of virtual serial devices in dom0 
(/dev/virtualcom[1-U]?) that i could attach one to each of domU's in a kind 
of serial device "bridge" or virtual null-modem between them.

The goal is to get functionality that would enable me to f.ex. use screen in 
dom0 on a device:
# screen /dev/virtualcom1
and be able to talk to applications in domU this way. 

I have been looking long and hard for clues, but seem to run in to dead ends 
so any help is appreciated.
