I started udev with /sbin/start_udev, as in the init script, but that seems
to have no effect ("ps aux | grep udev" gives me no output.) If I start the
guest with

 qemu-kvm -kernel kernel -initrd initrd -hda root -device virtio-serial
-serial stdio -chardev
-device virtserialport,chardev=channel0,name=org.libguestfs.channel.0

what should I expect the device connected to the pipe on the guest side to
be called?
