doc: Mention chardev:id in available devices for -serial
It is possible to pre-define a character device with the -chardev option and reference its id as serial device. The man page does not mention this feature. Use case: Use stdio as serial, but do not terminate VM on Ctrl-C -chardev stdio,id=mystdio,signal=off -serial chardev:mystdio Signed-off-by: Ingo van Lil <inguin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru>
