[et-mgmt-tools] [PATCH] virt-install: Add --serial and --parallel options

The attached patch adds --serial and --parallel options to virt-install, for
attaching the respective devices to the new VM. Isn't much to say here, some
examples explain it all:

Serial PTY:

--serial pty

Parallel to a file:

--serial file,path=/tmp/foo.log

TCP net console in server mode, using telnet format:

--serial tcp,host=,mode=bind,protocol=telnet

UDP net console, sending output to the specified host:

--serial udp,host=

The man page has examples for several other types as well. --serial and
--parallel share the same option format, as they do in the libvirt xml.

Any questions or comments appreciated.
