We're still missing a full support for qemu-system-arm because it has
different options, works differently and so on.

this is an old-style for -chardev serial, I believe

and this is new-style for x86 qemu, however, arm-based qemu haven't
adopted this option yet.

libvirt adds -nodefault and similar options (and has to add them)
because otherwise there are devices which libvirt doesn't know of and
is thus unable to work properly.  I found one small thing in the code
which might help you, I'll cook-up a patch and will put you in Cc
when sending, can you try compiling it with that patch added (or from
git when pushed) to see whether that will help you?

Have a nice day,
Martin
