Thanks, Stefan!

I synced offline with Sergio. It seems I've misread his comment.
The code is already available in libkrun, and to port it to rust-vmm
will likely take just a couple of days. We explored the option of also
requesting to implement VIRTIO_CONSOLE_F_MULTIPORT to make it an
appropriate GSoC project, but we decided this is not a good idea since
it doesn't look like that feature is useful for the projects consuming
rust-vmm. It also adds complexity, and we would need to maintain that as

Since it would still be nice to have virtio-console in rust-vmm, I'll
just open an issue in vm-virtio and label it with "help wanted" so
people can pick it up.
Can we remove the virtio-console project from the list of GSoC ideas?

Also, iul at amazon.com will like to help with mentoring the GSoC projects.
Can he be added as a co-mentor of: "Mocking framework for Virtio Queues"?

Sorry for the ping-pong, and thanks again for everything!
